In conjunction with February’s national designation as Black History Month, the community has a chance to take a look at the first civil rights movement, as part of the Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center’s monthly Scholar Series, Thursday, Feb. 13 at 1 p.m.
Led by Professor Lissa Brassfield, the free forum will explore “The Abolitionists of the 1830s: William Lloyd Garrison, Harriet Tubman, Angelina Grimke and Frederick Douglass.”
A longtime Santa Clarita Valley resident, Brassfield has taught history at College of the Canyons since 2001. She received both her Bachelor and Master’s degrees in history from California State University, Northridge, where she also is a part-time history professor.
“Lissa is extremely knowledgeable and really brings history to life,” said Robin Clough, the SCV Senior Center’s volunteer and recreation coordinator.
The SCV Senior Center’s monthly Scholar Series brings in lecturers and professors covering a wide array of topics. All of the talks are free and open to the public.
