Dr. Kerri Greenidge, Director of American Studies at Tufts University, reestablishes William Monroe Trotter’s essential place in the pantheon of American civil rights heroes. For more than thirty years, the Harvard-educated Trotter edited and published the Guardian, a weekly Boston newspaper that was read across the nation. Trotter advocated for a radical vision of black liberation that prefigured leaders such as Marcus Garvey, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr. Join us as Greenidge unpacks this indefatigable figure whose underappreciated legacy in the pursuit of racial justice is as pertinent as ever.
