Nancy Robertson Reading at IUPUI

A new book by Indiana University-Purdue University in Indianapolis History Professor Nancy Marie Robertson (pictured) explores how the Young Womens Christian Association (YWCA), the nation's first major biracial womens organization, provided a unique venue for women to respond to American race relations during the first half of the twentieth century and laid the groundwork for the subsequent civil rights movement. She'll talk about her book during a lunch on the IUPUI campus from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. 10 December. Prof. Robertson is an Associate Professor in the Department of History in the IUPUI School of Liberal Arts and an Associate Professor of Philanthropic Studies. She is also the director of the Womens Studies Program. Cost for the lunch and program, to be held in the University Faculty Club in Indianapolis, is $10 (book available for optional purchase). Space is limited and reservations are required; call Stephanie, 317:274-7014, or contact the sponsors for more information: Indiana University School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI and the IUPUI University Library.
