September's meeting will begin with an overview of Theodore Allen's thesis on the Invention of the White Race, using clips from a presentation by Prof. Jeffrey B. Perry, Allen's archivist, and excerpts from the book. Allen visited every Virginian county for it's earliest records to discover exactly when the word "white" was used in reference to people of European descent. What he found out will amaze you!
