Dr. Alison M. Parker, a distinguished chair of history at the University of Delaware, will present a webinar on Mary Church Terrell, a prominent African American and women’s rights activist in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The first president of the National Association of Colored Women and a founding member of the NAACP, Terrell collaborated closely with Frederick Douglass, Ida B. Wells, and W. E. B. Du Bois.

Unceasing Militant, Dr. Parker’s book, is the first biography of Terrell, bringing her voice and personality to life.
