Our program about the first African American legislators who served following the Civil War, scheduled for Saturday, has been postponed due to the weather. It will be rescheduled for March. Kathy Lauder, a retired researcher at the Tennessee State Library and Archives, will be the speaker.

Ms. Lauder taught high school English and dramatic arts for 30 years, then spent 10 years in Archival Technical Services at the TSLA before her retirement. Her work at the archives included research about 19th century Tennessee African American legislators which culminated in the TSLA Black History website.

She and her husband, Mike Slate, are the editors of the Nashville Historical Newsletter, available online at Nashville Historic Newsletter, and they have published two books of essays from the newsletter:The Confederate Twenty-Dollar Irony (2004) and From Knickers to Body Stockings (2006).

The Museum’s Public Programs Department has planned several programs this spring around the current exhibition,“What is to Become of the People” The Civil War and Reconstruction in Tennessee. Stay tuned for more information.
