Women as Creators and Leaders with the AFRO
In honor of Women’s History Month, we highlight the Baltimore-based and woman-led publication the AFRO. Dr. Frances Toni Draper, CEO and Publisher of the AFRO, will be in conversation with Lynley Herbert, Robert and Nancy Hall Curator of Rare Books and Manuscripts. Draper and Herbert will share stories of accomplishments in the AFRO’s long-running history and draw connections to women creating and publishing books and manuscripts that are in the Walters collection. This program is connected to New on the Bookshelf: The Creative Power of Women, on view in our Level 3 Manuscripts gallery from December 14, 2023 to June 16, 2024.
