Lunch & Learn Speaker Series
Dr. Arica Coleman 
It's Native American Heritage Month!
Join Dr. Arica L. Coleman for a discussion on her book That the Blood Stay Pure; African Americans, Native Americans, and the Predicament of Race and Identity in Virginia, a Choice Outstanding Academic Title for 2014, that traces the history and legacy of the state of Virginia's despicable, almost four-hundred year effort to maintain racial purity and the consequences of this on African American – Native American relations and kinship bonds in the Commonwealth. Dr. Arica L. Coleman is an award winning, nationally recognized independent scholar, lecturer, and freelance contributor in the area of American history. Her research focuses on comparative ethnic studies and issues of racial formation and identity.
About the Speaker Series
Join notable historians, curators, and leaders for a series of talks exploring aspects of the social movements of the early 20th Century and their relevance today. Talks explore Women's Suffrage, activism and protest, racial inequity, and the consequences and legacy of Woodrow Wilson’s presidency. This program is part of the Wilson House's new interpretation focused on African American history, women's history and Wilson's international impact.

The series is part of the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Campaign for Where Women Made History. The National Trust and its supporters are making a significant, multi-year commitment to elevate the stories of women and their contributions as leaders, innovators, and ground breakers throughout the course of American history.

You think it's been a long week? Delays in election results are nothing new. Visit our Virtual 1916 Campaign Exhibition to see a historical precedent for an election delay.
In an era in which political advocacy could not be conducted by Twitter, television or radio, buttons and pennants abounded and campaign branded items were really inventive. Visit our online exhibition of memorabilia to see a nutcracker in the shape of Woodrow Wilson's head!
