Greenwich Historical Society Presents: A Black Suffragist Story from Jim Crow South

Greenwich Historical Society is honored to welcome author and historian Adele Logan Alexander on Wednesday, October 28 at 6:00pm for a virtual Zoom discussion of her latest book, Princess of the Hither Isles.

In her epic biography, Alexander reconstructs the life of black suffragist Adella Hunt Logan, the author’s grandmother, in a gripping manner that blends family lore, historical research, and literary imagination.

Born during the Civil War into a slaveholding family that included black, white, and Cherokee forebears, Adella Hunt Logan dedicated herself to advancing political and educational opportunities for the African American community.

Alexander’s research into her grandmother’s life bridges the chasms that often frustrate effort to document the lives of those who traditionally have been silenced.
