Dr. Sarah Robbins’ recently published book, Learning Legacies, spotlights women writer-educators of the past whose stories can inspire community building today. One chapter highlights work by African American teachers and students from Spelman College. Another revisits settlement house collaborative learning in urban Chicago. Robbins also honors Native women educators’ nurturing models. Overall, Learning Legacies shows readers women’s leadership in American education and in writing about that vital work–writing that is now guiding new civic projects promoting social justice. Robbins’s talk will share ways her own public humanities work is now being shaped by doing research for this book.
