“Queens Documented: The Fight for Social Justice” is part of LatimerNOW‘s Unconquerable Social Justice Salon series. Headquartered at the Lewis Latimer Historic House Museum, LatimerNOW is remixing the museum experience! Highlighting the wonder of creativity, community and identity, LatimerNOW invites diverse audiences to connect with Latimer House the way they connect with their own homes: through culture, foodways, language, and storytelling. We celebrate African American inventor Lewis Latimer’s unconquerable legacy, as a renaissance man, a community connector and active citizen during the early 20th century.
