Dignity and Defiance: A Portrait of Mary Church Te...

Presented by Senator John Heinz History Center at Online/Virtual Space

Following a virtual screening of “Dignity and Defiance: A Portrait of Mary Church Terrell,” join African American Program Director Samuel W Black and film producer Robin Hamilton for a discussion about the film.
Raised in privilege but degraded by persistent racial prejudice, Mary Church Terrell fought for the basic human right to be treated equally. Born the year of the Emancipation Proclamation, she made it her life’s mission to fight for justice. She, along with her husband, became champions of this cause. Along the way, their house became a beacon for change. Today, her former home on 326 T Street is a dilapidated frame in LeDroit Park in Washington, D.C. Its current state threatens to erase a landmark that deserves to be preserved for a woman whose efforts continue to impact the city.
