Join us for a discussion with George Robb, professor of history at William Paterson University, on African American women breaking boundaries in business. In the early 20th century, a growing number of African American women in Newark broke economic and cultural barriers by establishing and operating a wide range of businesses. These pioneering Black entrepreneurs had to overcome both sexist stereotypes that a woman’s place was in the home and racist policies that sought to limit African American employment to unskilled, low-wage jobs. RSVP now to tune in virtually, or attend in person at the Newark Public Library, Centennial Hall, 2nd floor.
