Doc Chat is a weekly, 30-minute program series from the New York Public Library that digs deep into the stories behind the Library’s most interesting collections and highlights ways that teachers can incorporate them into the classroom.

On Thursday, 2/4 at 3:30pm, NYPL's Julie Golia and Amaka Okechukwu, professor of sociology at George Mason University, analyze excerpts from Black alternative periodicals of the 1960s and 1970s and discuss the historical context in which they were written, published, and circulated.

Educators, scholars, students, and all primary source lovers are welcome to join this lively conversation.
