  1. Afternoon Tea w/author Annie Boochever

    October 6, 2019, 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM @ Valdez Consortium Library

    We are so excited to welcome Annie Boochever, author of Fighter in Velvet Gloves: Alaska Civil Rights Hero Elizabeth Peratrovich, to the library for a special presentation. Light refreshments and tea will be served. Limited copies of the book will be available to purchase at the event. More about Fighter in Velvet Gloves: “No Natives or Dogs Allowed,” blared the storefront sign at Elizabeth Peratrovich, then a young Alaska Native Tlingit. The sting of those words would stay with her all her life..... In 1945, Peratrovich stood before the Alaska Territorial Legislative Session and gave a powerful speech about her childhood and her experiences being treated as a second-class citizen. Her heartfelt testimony led to the passing of the landmark Alaska Anti-Discrimination Act, America’s first civil rights legislation. Today, Alaska celebrates Elizabeth Peratrovich Day every February 16, and she will be honored on the gold one-dollar coin in 2020."
