Dr. Mia Bay, Professor of American History at the University of Pennsylvania, will discuss her latest book, Traveling Black: A Story of Race and Resistance. Her research has uncovered the efforts, including the creation of Black-owned companies, to overcome rules of segregation and restrictions from the era of the stage coach to trains, cars, buses, and planes.
Dr. Bay is also the author of To Tell the Truth Freely: The Life of Ida B. Wells, The White Image in the Black Mind, and co-author of Freedom on My Mind: A History of African Americans, with Documents.
The Center will be conducting a virtual book signing. Dr. Bay will sign bookplates for those who purchase her book. It is available for purchase at your local bookseller. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your address and name or names for the inscription and the Stevenson Center will do our best to send a signed bookplate (sticker) that you may then apply to your copy of her book.
