Mary Ann Shadd Cary was a trailblazing Black feminist, activist, journalist, and educator whose achievements can be traced from Delaware, Washington, D.C., and across Canada. Dr. Moriah will discuss her work on the first-ever edited collection on pioneering thinker Mary Ann Shadd Cary that centers innovative scholarly work from a broad range of interdisciplinary perspectives. As we approach the 200th anniversary of Mary Ann Shadd Cary’s birth in 2023, this collection will shine a new light on the importance of Shadd Cary’s work and the creative and scholarly work she has inspired.
