Nash, its pastor for more than 60 years, and includes rare photographs from the J. Edward Nash House and Museum. Also contributing to the talk will be Jesse E. Nash Jr., professor emeritus of Canisius College.
The “What Price Freedom?” lecture series is part of the Centennial Celebration of the Niagara Movement in Buffalo. Also featured is “On the Road to Freedom,” a historical display documenting the African American presence in Western New York from the antebellum period to the present.
