Book Discussion: A Girl Stands at the Door

Tuesday, April 30, 2019: 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Join the LA Law Library book discussion group as we explore the theme of "Women and the Law" with a discussion of A Girl Stands at the Door: The Generation of Young Women Who Desegregated America's Schools, which tells the remarkable stories of the girls who volunteered to desegregate formerly all-white schools.

About The Author Rachel Devlin:

  • Associate Professor of history at Rutgers University specializing in the cultural politics of girlhood, sexuality, and race in the postwar United States.
  • BA, Barnard College; PhD in History, Yale University
  • Recipient of fellowships from the American Council of Learned Societies, the Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History and the W.E.B. DuBois Institute at Harvard University

A Girl Stands at the Door draws on interviews and archival research to tell the stories of the many young women who stood up to enraged protestors, hostile teachers, and hateful white students every day while integrating classrooms.
