December 3: the History of the New London NAACP with NL NAACP President Jean Jordan
December 3 at 6:30 p.m at the B.P. Learned Mission at 40 Shaw Street: we're hosting a talk by New London NAACP President Jean Jordan on the history of the NL NAACP and its ongoing fight to end racial discrimination and secure equal rights under the law for all.
Jordan will discuss earlier African American organizations and the contributions of local civil rights icons like Reverend Albert Garvin, Sr., Bennie McKissick Dover Jackson and Linwood Bland, Jr., whose former house New London Landmarks is currently rehabilitating.
This program is made possible by a grant from the New London Water Authority Community Fund. Additionally, we received support for this program from the State Historic Preservation Office in the Department of Economic and Community Development and from our sponsors, Fiddleheads Food Cooperative and Connecticut College.
Free and open to the public, but seating is limited: we suggest reserving seats by emailing email@example.com.
