A Chat About Zilphia

I can’t believe I haven’t posted in this space in four years! It’s been a busy time, I guess, bringing the Zilphia book close to publishing. (We’re in the editing process now, and it’s due in 2020 from University of Texas Press.) I’ll try to do a better job of posting in this space as the project comes to fruition at last.

At any rate, a couple of weeks ago, I got to sit down with Highlander’s librarian and archivist, Susan Williams, to talk about Zilphia’s role — her work and her legacy there.

This video is part of an effort around a new Septima Clark Learning Center that the folks at Highlander will be building soon. In preparation, they’re doing some videos about the history of the school, starting here with Zilphia.

If you’re interested in tossing them some cash to make sure that the Septima building is fully accessible, you can learn more about that project and donate here.
