Jacquelyn Dowd Hall on
Sisters and Rebels: A Struggle for the Soul of America

presented by the University South Caroliniana Society and University Libraries

Thursday, October 3, 2019, at 5 p.m. in
Ernest F. Hollings Special Collections Library Program Room

Dr. Hall is a National Humanities Medal-winning author and professor emerita at UNC-Chapel Hill. Her new book, Sisters and Rebels: A Struggle for the Soul of America, tells the story of Elizabeth, Grace, and Katharine Lumpkin, sisters who followed divergent paths leading from a family history steeped in the Lost Cause of the Confederacy into a progressive twentieth century of women's achievement, desegregation, communism, McCarthyism and civil rights.

Dr. Hall will be available to sign copies of her book, offered for purchase after the talk.
