Brown Bag Lecture Series - "Documenting the Other Great Migration to Houston, 1900-1950"

Friday, February 23, 2018

February is traditionally known as Black History Month and to celebrate that fact, the Brown Bag Lecture Series features Dr. Bernadette Pruitt, associate professor of history at Sam Houston State University, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, February 23 at the Huntsville Public Library. Dr. Pruitt will speak about some of the primary documents she used for her book and their importance in genealogy in her presentation "Documenting the Other Great Migration to Houston, 1900-1950." The first Black woman to earn a PhD in History from the University of Houston, she obtained her undergraduate and master’s degrees from HBCU Texas Southern University. Attendees may bring a brown bag lunch. Lunch time begins at 11:30 a.m. and the lecture will begin at noon at the Huntsville Public Library. Beverages will be provided, and admission is free. For more information contact Mary Kokot, Adult Services Coordinator, at 936-291-5471.
