Third Thursday Brown Bag Lunch Program
February 21st 2019
The Calvert County Historical Society’s Brown Bag Lunch program on Thursday, February 21st, will feature Carol M. Booker telling the story of a groundbreaking African American woman who made giant strides in journalism nearly eighty years ago. In 1942, Alice Dunnigan, a sharecropper’s daughter from Kentucky, made her way to the nation’s capital and a career in journalism that led her to the White House and the Congressional Press Galleries — the first Black woman ever admitted to these exclusive ranks of the American press. With Alone Atop the Hill, Carol McCabe Booker has condensed Dunnigan’s 1974 self-published and long-forgotten autobiography to appeal to a general audience and has added scholarly annotations that provide historical context. Dunnigan’s dynamic story reveals her importance to the fields of journalism, women’s history, and the civil rights movement and creates a compelling portrait of a groundbreaking American. The program starts at Noon, at Linden, 70 Church Street in Prince Frederick. Free and Open to All!
