Event description

Description

The Baton Foundation, Inc., in partnership with the Auburn Avenue Research Library on African American Culture and History, will host a lecture and book signing about the intersection of Black education and civil rights, and its legacy today. Copies of The Lost Education of Horace Tate will be available for purchase. This program is free and open to the public. Reserve seats here.

The Lost Education of Horace Tate tells the gripping and largely untold story of how Black educators in the South quietly, but courageously, laid the groundwork for one of the greatest victories of the civil rights movement over the course of nearly a century. As timely as it is inspiring, Vanessa Siddle Walker’s compelling narrative also examines what was lost in the integration of public schools—namely, many of the distinctive insights and practices that enabled African American educators to prepare Black children not only to succeed academically, but also to be full and equal participants in American democracy—and how the nation continues to suffer for that loss.
