Event Details

Helen Matthews Lewis changed society’s perception of Appalachia in many ways by building bridges locally and globally among students, academics, cultural workers, coal miners and activists. By being the living embodiment of her mantra “living social justice,” she linked scholarship with activism and encouraged deeper analysis of the region.

Helen Matthews Lewis: Living Social Justice is a collection of Lewis’ writing and memories. Documenting her life and work, editor Judith Jennings, along with Patricia Beaver, highlight Lewis’ extensive achievements,  ringing us the story of one woman’s quest for activism and social justice.

Judith Jennings is the executive director of the Kentucky Foundation for Women. She is the author of Gender, Religion, and Radicalism in the Long Eighteenth Century: The “Ingenious Quaker” and Her Connections.
