The Auburn Avenue Research Library, in partnership with the Baton Foundation, is thrilled to offer a lecture about the life and work of Civil Rights activist, Helen Nannie Burroughs.
Nannie Helen Burroughs: A Documentary Portrait of an Early Civil Rights Pioneer, 1900-1959, represents a landmark contribution to the Black intellectual historical project, by allowing readers to experience Burroughs in her own words. This anthology of her works, written between 1900 and 1959, encapsulates Burroughs’ work as a theologian, philosopher, activist, educator, intellectual, and evangelist, as well as the myriad ways her career resisted definition.
