The Revolutionary World of a Free Black Man: Jacob Francis, 1754-1836 - HCHS Black History Month Program

Thursday February 25, 2021
7:00 PM

The Hunterdon County Historical Society will host a free virtual program on African-American patriot Jacob Francis, who fought alongside Continental soldiers during the American Revolution. Author and historian William “Larry” Kidder will discuss Francis’s life on Thursday, Feb. 25 at 7 p.m. via Zoom. To reserve a space, visit the historical society’s website at www.hunterdonhistory.org.

This program — titled The Revolutionary World of a Free Black Man: Jacob Francis, 1754-1836 — is based upon Kidder’s research for his forthcoming book-length biography of Jacob Francis to be published by Knox Press. Francis’s life reveals an important story of New Jersey and American history that is little known – how people who were neither enslaved nor white experienced the American Revolution and the early Republic period.

Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow, New-York Historical Society & PPL

Thursday February 25, 2021
7:00 PM

Based on the New-York Historical Society's 2018-19 exhibition, this virtual presentation explores Black Americans' struggle for equality under the law from 1865 through World War I.

This presentation, offered by the New-York Historical Society's curators Lily Wong or Dominique Jean-Louis, explores the struggle for full citizenship and racial equality that unfolded in the 50 years after the Civil War. When slavery ended in 1865, a period of Reconstruction began, leading to such achievements as the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution. By 1868, all persons born in the United States were citizens and equal under the law. But efforts to create an interracial democracy were contested from the start. A harsh backlash ensued, ushering in a half century of the “separate but equal” age of Jim Crow.

Drawing from the Collections: Storytelling with Collage, Princeton University Art Museum

Thursday February 25, 2021
8:00 PM

This live art-making class is inspired by Jacob Lawrence's The 1920's . . . The Migrants Arrive and Cast Their Ballots. This screenprint is alive with energy and activity. Lawrence's characteristically expressive style conveys the scene with exaggerated geometries, angular figures, and blocks of color. Lawrence is known for his narrative pictorial compositions that depict significant historical events, such as the Great Migration or the life of Frederick Douglass, as well as scenes of the everyday life of African Americans. In this class we will focus on visual storytelling and creating collage compositions using basic shapes and blocks of color. In partnership with the Arts Council of Princeton.
