History Sandwiched In: 'An African American Woman's Life in Search of Justice'
Sylvia Bell White's life tracks the roots and routes of many working-class black people of her generation. Join historian and co-author Jody LePage as she presents Sylvia's oral-history autobiography, "Sister: An African American Life in Search of Justice." With a historical span from grandparents born in slavery to the nation's first African-American president, the story centers on Sylvia's post-World War II migration to Milwaukee and her pursuit of justice for her younger brother's racially charged murder.
