Shorefront Journal – Two Great Stories of Evanston Women

The EWHP is pleased to share these very interesting articles from Shorefront Journal, the blog of the Shorefront Legacy Center which works to document the story of African Americans on the North Shore and in Evanston. Shorefront has from the beginning been an important partner with the Evanston Women’s History Project, helping us capture the story of African American women in Evanston. These articles were written using their research collections as primary sources.
