Five years ago, seeing the need for more spaces for the public to learn and discuss new work in Black history, Jeanne Theoharis co-created a monthly series at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture with Sarah Lawrence professor Komozi Woodard. The series features a roundtable of scholars and writers on the first Thursday of each month on a topic in Black history, usually centered around a new book(s) in the field. Recent conversations have focused on the War on Poverty at 50, women in the Black Panther Party, race and the criminal justice system, educational injustice and organizing, the church and the struggle, Black and Latino coalitions, and the list goes on.
