Inside the Vault: "Your future rests… in your hands!”

Keisha Rembert, Assistant Professor of Teacher Preparation at National Louis University, and Nate McAlister, History Educator at Seaman High School in Topeka, Kansas, joined the Gilder Lehrman Collection curators in this session of Inside the Vault: Highlights from the Gilder Lehrman Collection on July 24, 2020, to explore an unusual historical source: a comic book. Produced by the NAACP, the book explores institutional segregation in employment, housing, education, and the importance of voting.
