Author of 'Right to Ride' to speak at Marshall Nov. 12
"Dr. Kelley is a fantastic speaker and her work should interest many in our community," said Dr. David Trowbridge, associate professor of history and director of African and African American studies at Marshall.
Right to Ride is about early civil rights activism and boycotts of segregated streetcars during the early 1900s. Between 1900 and 1907, citizens of 25 Southern cities protested segregation on streetcars. The book received the 2010 Letitia Woods Brown Memorial Book Award from the Association of Black Women Historians.
Kelley's scholarly work focuses on the history of African American resistance to segregation, and she teaches courses on African American history, civil rights, oral history and the history of New Orleans and Hurricane Katrina. She earned her B.A. from the University of Virginia and her M.A. and Ph.D. from Duke University.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing by the author.
