History Lecture

Utah Valley State College will host Susan Sessions Rugh, BYU associate professor of American history, for a lecture on the African American family vacation experiences after World War II.

The lecture will be held at the BYU campus on February 6 at 7 p.m. in the Liberal Arts Building, room 101.

Rugh’s visit is one of a six-part lecture series by visiting scholars focusing on turning points in history.

Rugh spent the last five years researching her current book project on the importance of vacations to the middle-class American family including whites, blacks, Jews and Mormons.

One focal point in her book explores the experiences of black families on their road trips during the Civil Rights movement, a significant turning point in American history.

Her research on the African American family relied primarily on personal letters in the papers of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), archived at the Library of Congress, as well as travel guides for African-Americans at the Schomburg Center in Harlem.

The lecture will be held at the BYU campus on February 6 at 7 p.m. in the Liberal Arts Building, room 101.
