Join University of Minnesota Professor Saje Mathieu as she explores the Great Migration of African Americans leading up to and during WW1, and the violence against them that erupted in its aftermath. Coined "Red Summer" by civil rights activist and author James Weldon Johnson during his work as a field secretary with the NAACP, the summer and early autumn of 1919 was marked by hundreds of deaths and casualties as a result of race riots across the United States.

Forgotten Stories is a new series that brings together nationally known historians to explore forgotten WW1-era stories of the individuals and organizations who made modern America. Look for additional lectures offered each month through November.

This program is made possible by the Fred C. and Katherine B. Andersen Foundation.
