About this Event
Inspired by the clubs of the Harlem Renaissance, NMAAHC invites you to our annual Speak Easy Evening, which this year is a virtual space that welcomes all gender identities and orientations and allies to enjoy world-class entertainment, a genealogy workshop, and an insightful conversation about a seminal figure in the story of intersectionality, Pauli Murray.  
  
7:30 PM Enjoy the work of performance Artist and Trans Activist Lady Dane Figueroa Edidi  
 
8:00 PM Join the staff of the Robert F. Smith Explore Your Family History Center who will present a mini workshop on how to find and honor your LGBTQ ancestors.  
 
8:15 PM Renowned panelists Dr. E. Patrick Johnson, Dr. C. Riley Snorton, Kylar Broadus, Esq and Rev. Yolanda Rolle, PhD discuss the amazing life and achievements of Pauli Murray - first in her class at Howard University Law school (and the only woman), first African American to earn a JSD Degree from Yale Law School, and the first African American female ordained as an Episcopalian Priest. All this while grappling with her gender identity.  
 
9:00 PM Close out your evening with the smart social commentary of noted comedian Sampson McCormick.
