Join us online! (

This month’s Lunch & Learn will focus on E. Frederic Morrow, the first African-American to serve as a member of the White House executive staff. An ardent supporter of civil rights, Mr. Morrow was frustrated with the “lukewarm stand” of the Eisenhower Administration in reference to the movement. Dr. John H. Morrow, Jr., Franklin Professor of History at the University of Georgia and nephew of E. Frederic Morrow, will moderate a discussion on Mr. Morrow’s life. The conversation will focus on Mr. Morrow’s White House years while touching on aspects of his personal life. Joining Dr. Morrow will be Dr. Michael Birkner of Gettysburg College and Mr. Phillip Cunningham of the Amistad Research Center.
