Black Mothers and the Civil Rights Movement


Date: Apr 15th

Join scholar and writer Anna Malaika Tubbs in conversation with Dr. Christina Greer about the untold story of Black motherhood during the American civil rights movement and Tubbs’ new book, The Three Mothers: How the Mothers of Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and James Baldwin Shaped a Nation.

Tubbs’ essential debut pulls back the veil on how Berdis Baldwin, Alberta King, and Louise Little shaped their famous sons into the leaders they became. Hear Tubbs and Greer discuss the essential — and too often overlooked — roles that Black mothers play in the ongoing fight for racial justice in America, Tubbs’ inspiration for the book, the pernicious reasons why some stories get left out of the history books, and much more.
