February 20, 2023 Monday. “The Other Side of King’s Highway – African American Life in Princeton, NJ” — our speaker Shirley Ann Satterfield’s presentation focused on the beginnings of Princeton, including the Leni Lenape population, slavery, segregation, and the displacement of minority residents in Princeton. Shirley has had a long journey in social activism. She remembers her long walks in Princeton with Albert Einstein. While a student at Bennett College for Women, she participated in the 1961 Sit-Ins in Greensboro, North Carolina. She has pursued a rich career as an educator, guidance counselor, spiritual leader, and historian. Governor Christie Whitman recognized her excellence in establishing an outstanding organization for young women in Princeton High School. And in 2007 Shirley argued before the Princeton Borough Council to name the plaza next to the Library after Mr. Albert Edward Hinds, an ordinary man who did extraordinary deeds for most of his 104 years in Princeton. Shirley is passionate about honoring the past, enriching the present, and creating organizations that will endure into the future. We look forward to her sharing her passions with us. Poster.
