The Invisibles: Slavery Inside The White House and How It Helped Shape America

Published by:

Brooklyn Central Library, Sunday, June 5, 2016 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm . Featured Event Trustees’ Room The Invisibles: Slavery Inside The White House and How It Helped Shape America

Journalist Jesse J. Holland tells the story of the executive mansion’s most unexpected residents, the African American slaves who lived with the U.S. presidents who owned them. The Invisibles chronicles the African American presence inside the White House from its beginnings in 1782 until 1862, when President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation that granted slaves their freedom. During these years, slaves were the only African Americans to whom the most powerful men in the United States were exposed on a daily, and familiar, basis. These often-intimate relationships shaped the views that various presidents held about class and race in American society, and these slaves contributed not only to the life and comforts of the presidents they served, but to America as a whole.

Jesse J. Holland is a nationally recognized journalist and media personality from Washington, D.C., who for years has combined his work as a political reporter for the world’s largest news organization, The Associated Press, with a love of African American history and news.

Patrick Iber & Karen Paget on the Cultural Cold War

Published by:

Authors Patrick Iber and Karen Paget discuss the Cultural Cold War, the CIA’s attempt to champion left-wing cultural movements and student unions during the Cold War.

During the Cold War, left-wing Latin American artists, writers, and scholars worked as diplomats, advised rulers, opposed dictators, and even led nations. Their competing visions of social democracy and their pursuit of justice, peace, and freedom led them to organizations sponsored by the Soviet-backed World Peace Council, the U.S.-supported Congress for Cultural Freedom, and, after the 1959 Cuban Revolution, the homegrown Casa de las Américas.

Neither Peace nor Freedom (Harvard University Press) delves into the entwined histories of these organizations and the aspirations and dilemmas of intellectuals who participated in them, from Diego Rivera and Pablo Neruda to Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Jorge Luis Borges. Patrick Ibercorrects the view that such individuals were merely pawns of the competing superpowers.

Iber will be joined by Skype by Karen Paget, author of Patriotic Betrayal (Yale University Press). In this revelatory book, Paget shows how the CIA turned the National Student Association into an intelligence asset during the Cold War, with students used—often wittingly and sometimes unwittingly—as undercover agents inside America and abroad. In 1967, Ramparts magazine exposed the story, prompting the Agency into engineering a successful cover-up.

A cautionary tale, Patriotic Betrayal, says Karl E. Meyer, a former editorial board member of the New York Times and The Washington Post, evokes “the aura of a John le Carré novel with its self-serving rationalizations, its layers of duplicity, and its bureaucratic doubletalk.”

Joel Whitney, author of the forthcoming Finks: How the CIA Tricked the World’s Best Writers (OR Books), hosts the discussion.

Bessie Margolin: Fair Labor Lawyer

Published by:

Historian Marlene Trestman discusses Supreme Court advocate Bessie Margolin, who shaped modern American labor policy while creating a place for female lawyers in the nations highest courts. Despite her beginnings in an orphanage and her rare position as a southern, Jewish woman pursuing a legal profession, Margolin became an influential Supreme Court advocate.

She launched her career in the early 1930s, when only 2 percent of America’s attorneys were female, and far fewer were Jewish and from the South. Margolin defended the constitutionality of the New Deal’s Tennessee Valley Authority, drafted rules establishing the American military tribunals for Nazi war crimes in Nuremberg, and, on behalf of the Labor Department, shepherded through the courts the child labor, minimum wage, and overtime protections of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938.

A founding member of the National Organization for Women, Margolin culminated her government service as a champion of the Equal Pay Act, arguing and winning the first appeals. Margolin’s passion for her work and focus on meticulous preparation resulted in an outstanding record in appellate advocacy, both in number of cases and rate of success. By prevailing in 21 of her 24 Supreme Court arguments, Margolin shares the elite company of only a few dozen people who attained such high standing as Supreme Court advocates.

Marlene Trestman, author of Fair Labor Lawyer, is a former special assistant to the Maryland attorney general and former law instructor at Loyola University of Maryland’s Sellinger School of Business & Management. A New Orleans native, Trestman had a personal relationship with Margolin that grew from common childhood experiences
