On September 19th, Andre Vann will present on his research titled "A New Birth of Freedom: The Hawkins Family During the Jim Crow Era from Henderson, NC to Boston and Cambridge, MA." His talk will use visual images and genealogy to explore how members of Dr. Brown's family confronted segregation and Jim Crow, and the decisions made by them by migrating to New England during the 189s.
