Wednesday, March 2 6:30 p.m. Daniel Library Free, open to the public
Events honoring Black History Month continue with a book talk and signing on Wednesday, March 2.
The Citadel will host Lahnice McFall Hollister at 6:30 p.m. in Daniel Library.
Hollister, a genealogist and family historian, has published research in national genealogical journals and has received numerous awards for her publications.
Her book talk will focus on her most recent publication: “Resisting Jim Crow: The Autobiography of Dr. John McFall.” McFall was among Charleston’s early Black pharmacists and was the brother of Hollister’s grandfather. Hollister has received critical acclaim from scholars for uncovering this previously unknown manuscript by one of Charleston’s African American healthcare pioneers.
This event is open to all members of the campus community, but space is limited. To register, click here.
