Due to an unforeseen event, the Rev. Addie L. Wyatt Exhibition Tour has been cancelled. We apologize for the inconvenience.
The CAA Events Subcommittee invites all members, students, and interested others to join us for the Chicago Public Library's Vivian G. Harsh Research Collection of Afro-American History and Literature exhibit recognizing the life and work of the late Rev. Addie L. Wyatt, who served as co-pastor of Chicago's Vernon Park Church of God with her husband, the Rev. Claude Wyatt, Jr., and was one of the leading human rights activists in 20th century America. This exhibit traces Wyatt’s life and work from her birth in Brookhaven, Miss., to her passing in 2012, from her part in the epic Great Migration of African Americans from the rural South to Chicago to her rise in the labor unions to her fight for women's rights. We will be hearing from one of the archivist's that created this exhibit, as well.
