EVENTS & EXHIBITS

    • Anders Walker - “The Burning House: Jim Crow and the Making of Modern America”
      Author Programs July 30, 2018

      Lecture/Booksigning

      Carter Presidential Library & Museum Theater

      Free and Open to the Public

      In this dramatic reexamination of the Jim Crow South, Anders Walker demonstrates that racial segregation fostered not simply terror and violence, but also diversity, one of our most celebrated ideals. He investigates how prominent intellectuals like Robert Penn Warren, James Baldwin, Eudora Welty, Ralph Ellison, Flannery O’Connor, and Zora Neale Hurston found pluralism in Jim Crow, a legal system that created two worlds, each with its own institutions, traditions, even cultures.

    • Dr. Vanessa Siddle Walker - “The Lost Education of Horace Tate”
      Author Programs July 31, 2018

      Lecture/Booksigning

      Carter Presidential Library & Museum Theater

      Free and Open to the Public

      For two years an aging Dr. Horace Tate—a former teacher, principal, and state senator—told Emory University professor Vanessa Siddle Walker about his clandestine travels on unpaved roads under the cover of night, meeting with other educators and with Dr. King, Georgia politicians, and even U.S. Presidents. Thus began Walker’s sixteen-year project to uncover the network of educators behind countless battles—in courtrooms, schools, and communities—for the education of black children. This is their story.

    • Ruby Lal - “Empress: The Astonishing Reign of Nur Jahen”
      Author Programs August 2, 2018

      Lecture/Booksigning

      Carter Presidential Library & Museum Theater

      Free and Open to the Public

      Acclaimed historian Ruby Lal uncovers the rich life and world of Nur Jahan, rescuing this dazzling figure from patriarchal and Orientalist clichés of romance and intrigue, and giving new insight into the lives of women and girls in the Mughal Empire, even where scholars claim there are no sources. Nur’s confident assertion of authority and talent is revelatory. In “Empress”, she finally receives her due in a deeply researched and evocative biography that awakens us to a fascinating history.
