FIRST FRIDAY SPEAKER SERIES: RACE, GENDER, & INCARCERATION IN GILDED AGE KENTUCKY
Talks/Lectures

Fannie Keys Harvey and Lila B. White, two Black women from 19th century Lexington, Kentucky, were both jailed at the Frankfort Penitentiary. Their crime? Daring to fight back against abusive family members. Join us via Zoom as Dr. Charlene J. Fletcher shares her research exploring the experiences of confined and incarcerated Black women in Kentucky, from Reconstruction to the Progressive Era. Dr. Fletcher “explore(s) how these women both defied and defined confinement through their incarceration, interactions with the public, social and political entities of the period, as well as how they challenged ideas of race and femininity.” Come and join the conversation! Please register here, and you will receive information on how to connect. The registration deadline is 10 am on the day of the event. Questions?
