Book Event: The Life of Lucy Diggs Slowe
(Book Signing/Discussion)

Author Anne Pruitt Logan will present her book, "Faithful to the Task at Hand: The Life of Lucy Diggs Slowe" (Price $29.95). Born just 20 years after the end of slavery and orphaned at the age of five, Lucy Diggs Slowe became a seventeen-time tennis champion and the first African American woman to win a major sports title, a founder of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority, and the first Dean of Women at Howard University. She provided leadership and service in a wide range of organizations concerned with improving the conditions of women, African Americans, and other disadvantaged groups and also participated in peace activism.
