Former Princeton Resident Taylor A. Marrow III, now a Salem, Oregon Professor and new editor of Ida B. Wells-Barnett’s “America Awakened” (newly released in September 2020), returns to his hometown of Princeton for a Zoom webinar fundraiser to speak on issues of race.
Taylor “Todd” Marrow III, 1990 graduate of Princeton High School, now Associate Professor at Chemeketa College and noted African American historian, talks about his newly edited book “America Awakened, The Anti-Lynching Crusade of Ida B. Wells-Barnett,” his life growing up in Princeton, what motivated his newly edited book and other important aspects of race. The event will be moderated by Pennington School History professor and Marrow’s childhood friend, Jason Harding.
Proceeds will fund the installation of historical plaques in the Witherspoon-Jackson neighborhood that commemorate the rich history of the neighborhood’s African American community.
