Join historian Kerri K. Greenidge on her book talk on "Black Radical: The Life and Times of William Monroe Trotter."
Virtually unknown to the wider public, William Monroe Trotter was an unlikely American hero. With the verve of a newspaperman and the fearlessness of an emancipator, he galvanized black working class citizens to wield their political power despite the violent racism of post-Reconstruction America. This seminal Bostonian’s prophetic yet ultimately tragic life offers a link between Frederick Douglass and the civil rights leaders of the 1960s.
