In Struggle Against Jim Crow: Lulu B. White and the NAACP, 1900-1957 by Merline Pitre examines the life of this civil rights champion, beginning with her birth in Elmo, Texas, in 1900, her marriage to Houston businessman and activist Julius White and her graduation from Prairie View College.
On Monday, June 2, at 7:30 p.m., Texas PBS will present an online discussion with Pitre, giving readers the chance to learn more about this chapter of our state’s history.
