A book launch webinar celebrating the contributions of America’s first Black economist, Sadie T.M. Alexander, will be held on June 15 from noon (EST) to 1:30 p.m (EST).
The book Democracy, Race, and Justice: The Speeches and Writing of Sadie T.M. Alexander, recognizes the long-overlooked contributions of a pioneer of feminism, economics, and civil rights. The webinar participants include Alexander’s daughters Mary Cannaday and Rae Alexander-Minter, great-granddaughter Nicole Lewis, the book’s editor Nina Banks, a panel of economists that includes AEA president David Card, and more. The book’s publication coincides with the 100th anniversary of Alexander receiving her doctorate.
