Who in the World is Merze Tate?

March 22 @ 7:00 pm8:30 pm

Author Sonya Bernard Hollins will update us on her research into the amazing life and mysteries of Merze Tate. An African American girl born in 1905 in rural Michigan, Tate graduated first in her class from Western Michigan University in 1927, earned a doctorate from Oxford University, worked for the State Department, and traveled around the world twice. She became a Howard University history professor and sometime U.S. diplomat, held patents, spoke five languages, wrote seven political books, and purchased a ticket for a flight into outer space before leaving a legacy of millions to educational institutions. Bernard Hollins will release a book on Tate soon. Maybe in March! Be there!
