Inside the Vault: "Meanwhile Back at the Branch"
Join us on November 3, 2022, from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. ET (4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. PT) when our curators will discuss the NAACP pamphlet "Meanwhile Back at the Branch" with Barbara Combs, of Kennesaw State University. This pamphlet details the initiatives of NAACP branches across the country that took place at the same time as the Selma March in 1965. We will examine many of the different ways people across the United States worked to advance equality.

This event is for teachers, students and their families — and everyone with an interest in history!

Everyone who registers will be sent a Zoom meeting link and instructions in the confirmation email.

PD certificates will be sent to all who attend the entirety of the program.

Please add the Gilder Lehrman Institute to your email safe sender list.
