In honor of Women's History Month join The African American Library at the Gregory School for a discussion led by prolific author and scholar Dr. Sikivu Hutchinson. Over forty years ago, on November 18, 1978, more than 900 people died in a mass murder-suicide at the Peoples Temple Settlement in Jonestown, Guyana. Decades later, the Jonestown massacre remains one of the most controversial and studied events in American history. Yet, although the majority of the Jonestown massacre victims were Black women and children, Black women’s voices remain marginalized in Jonestown literature. The event will explore the social, historical, and political factors that influenced Black peoples’ involvement in the Peoples Temple movement and their emigration to Jonestown. Join the in-depth discussion as they honor the beloved black women and children whose lives have shaped the future for young black women of today.
