Black History Month Speaker Series: Penny Washington
Sunday, February 12, 2023, 9:30 AM - 10:30 AM

Location: Chapel, 125 E Lancaster Ave, Wayne, PA US 19087

Join us to hear local historian Penny Washington discuss the importance and relevance of the Brown v. Board of Education decision in our own community. Her presentation is entitled “Right Here: Main Line Fight for School Integration,” and centers on the Berwyn School Fight of the 1930’s, a local precursor to the activism and legal action in Brown v. Board of Education. 

A native of West Chester, Ms. Washington has studied many aspects of local African American history and published her findings in the Tredyffrin Easttown Historical Society’s History Quarterly.  She currently serves as a consultant for People’s Light in Malvern and on the Board of Directors of the Radnor Township Civic Association.
