...
On Sunday, January 15 at 5pm, the "Bringing the Dream Home" adult program features presentations by Gregory and Mills and discussion. (Due to damage to the Library's kitchen from Hurricane Irene, there is no MLK potluck supper this year, though snacks will be served.)

Dr. Mills will discuss the work and abolitionist politics of Uriah Boston, an African American barber in 19th century Poughkeepsie - a case study from his forthcoming book, Shaving Men, Grooming Race: A History of Black Barbers and Barber Shops. Boston engaged in a heated debate with Frederick Douglass over the value of service work, particularly barbering, as a measurement of racial progress. In ways that Martin Luther King Jr. argued a century later, Boston and Douglass connected labor rights with civil rights to centralize economic security in the definition of citizenship. Boston's work as a barber and abolitionist offer wonderful insights into how black barbers used their positions to fight for freedom," Mills said. On Monday, January 16 at 2pm, the Library presents its MLK Day program for school-age children, with Dr. Mills and Dr. Gregory reading stories and presenting music that explore similar themes in an age-appropriate way-black barbers and service work, the power of improvisation and the sacrifices, love and dreams that animate civil rights engagement.

Students in the African-American history class of Quincy T. Mills at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York, teamed up with students of earth science and geography on a research project at the Negro Burial Ground in Rhinebeck, New York. The students used high-tech geophysical equipment at the half-acre cemetery and determined that there were far more people buried there than grave markers indicated.
A simultaneous search of historical documents found that there was a vibrant black community in Rhinebeck in the nineteenth century, including a large colony of artisans.
Professor Mills, who joined the Vassar faculty in 2006, is a graduate of the University of Illinois. He holds an MBA from DePaul University and a master's degree and a Ph.D. in history from the University of Chicago. His forthcoming book is entitled Shaving Men, Grooming Race: A History of Black Barbers and Barber Shops, 1830-1970.
