On Thursday, February 24, 2022, at 7 p.m. PT / 10 p.m. ET, we’re proud to present the second in our three-part conversation series with History Club on Clubhouse. This time, the topic is “Photography and the Civil Rights Movement,” and History Club founder and host Jason Steinhauer has invited Dr. Martha Bouyer, the creator of the Stony the Road project, and Steven Murray from the Alabama State Archives, to be his special guests.

Each talk in this Clubhouse series is supplemented by a Flipboard collection that allows listeners to go deeper on what’s being discussed. Check out the companion Storyboard for some pre-reading on how photography was instrumental to the U.S. Civil Rights movement in the 1950s and ‘60s. You can use this invite to learn more about the event and to add it to your calendar.

Our first conversation in the series was called “Photography and the Holocaust,” in honor of International Holocaust Remembrance Day on January 27, 2022. If you missed that talk, featuring Jason in conversation with Michael Glickman, founder of JMuse and former CEO of the Museum of Jewish Heritage — A Living Memorial to the Holocaust, you can listen to it here and/or check out the related Storyboard with essential reads curated by Jason. 

The March conversation will be about women’s suffrage photography. Follow History Club on Flipboard to learn more about it and to be among the first to get its companion collection.
