Living History Days at N-YHS
Living History @ Home: Cooking for the Civil Rights Movement
Join us online! | Wednesday, January 12 | 4pm

Free; all ages  

Discover the overlooked work of Black women in the civil rights movement, where sexism often forced them to serve in behind-the-scenes roles. But women are creative! Learn about the story of Georgia Gilmore and how she used her kitchen skills to raise money in secret for the Montgomery, Alabama, bus boycott. Cook along with us as we bake Gilmore’s chocolate cake! Check out the ingredients list here and be sure to tune in for Ms. Cheyney’s special additions!
