    YWCA Community Zoom Featuring Kabria Baumgartner - 11th Annual Luncheon
    4/28/21 via Zoom

    The YWCA is gearing up to host their 11th Annual Community Luncheon on April 28th. Of course this year they have made some changes. Our event will be via zoom and instead of a meal attendees will receive a $25 Brine gift card. The YWCA is really excited about this year's speaker is amazing speaker, Kabria Baumgartner.

    Kabria is a resident of Newburyport and an associate professor of English and American Studies and core faculty in the Women’s and Gender Studies department at the University of New Hampshire where she was named the 2019 Outstanding Assistant Professor. For the last two years, Kabria and a team of researchers have been digging through archival records at repositories and historical societies, seeking to learn more about the African American experience in Essex County, Massachusetts, a national heritage area. In this talk, she will share some of the compelling stories that she found, like the one about the nineteenth-century “African princess,” Sara Baro of Ipswich or the one about twentieth-century activist Nelson Ricks who worked at Newburyport’s Atkinson Coal Company. Exploring these stories is vital, not only to highlight African American contributions to the economic development as well as the cultural and intellectual wealth of Essex County, but also to gain deeper appreciation for the diversity among African descended people who have called Newburyport home.

    Her research and writing interests focus on African American history, literature, and culture in nineteenth-century New England. She is the author of the award-winning book, In Pursuit of Knowledge: Black Women and Educational Activism in Antebellum America (New York University Press, 2019), which tells the story of African American girls and women who fought to democratize public and private schools in the nineteenth-century Northeast. She has also published numerous scholarly articles and book chapters, and her op-eds and other popular writing have been featured in the Washington Post, WBUR’s blog Cognoscenti, and Historic New England Magazine. She is writing a biography of the African American lawyer Robert Morris.
