Apr 19 2015
The First Tennessee African American Legislators

Kathy Lauder, a retired researcher from the Tennessee Library and Archives, will be the speaker for a program entitled “The First Tennessee African American Legislators.” Ms. Lauder taught high school English and dramatic arts for 30 years, then spent 10 years in Archival Technical Services at the TSLA before her retirement. Her work at the archives included research about 19th century Tennessee African American legislators which culminated in the TSLA Black History website. She and her husband, Mike Slate, are the editors of the Nashville Historical Newsletter, and they have published two books of essays from the newsletter: The Confederate Twenty-Dollar Irony (2004) and From Knickers to Body Stockings (2006).

Terms and conditions of use may vary according to the requested lot.
