As we approach the 200th anniversary of Mary Ann Shadd Cary’s birth in 2023, the Colored Conventions Project is partnering with leading scholars, archivists, artists, and writers to host a series of digital events that explore her life and legacy. This pioneering educator was the first Black woman to edit a newspaper in North America and the first to attend law school.
