Laura Warren Hill, Strike the Hammer: Rochester's Black Freedom Struggle, 1940-1970

The Department of History is thrilled to welcome author Laura Warren Hill to speak about her recently published book, Strike the Hammer: Rochester's Black Freedom Struggle, 1940-1970. In this book, Hill examines Rochester's long Civil Rights history and, drawing extensively on oral accounts of the northern, urban community, offers rich and detailed stories of the area's protest tradition. Augmenting oral testimonies with records from the NAACP, SCLC, and the local FIGHT, Strike the Hammer paints a compelling picture of the foundations for the movement. There will be Q&A with the audience following Hill's talk.

The presentation will also be available via Zoom.
