An Evening with Adele Logan Alexander

In the Vanderbilt Education Center Barn
The Greenwich Historical Society is honored to welcome author and historian Adele Logan Alexander for a discussion of her latest book Princess of the Hither Isles. In this epic biography, Alexander reconstructs the life of black suffragist Adella Hunt Logan—the author’s grandmother—in a gripping manner that blends family lore, historical research and literary imagination. Born during the Civil War into a slave-holding family that included black, white and Cherokee forebears, Adella Hunt Logan dedicated herself to advancing political and educational opportunities for the African American community. Alexander’s remarkable research into her grandmother’s life bridges the chasms that often frustrate efforts to document the lives of those who traditionally have been silenced.
Members: $10; Non-members: $15
