Rethinking Southern History: A Panel on the Intersections of Race, Class, Gender, and Urban Studies
Location: Palamountain Hall: PMH 202
Time: 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Open to campus community only.
Speaker: Leslie Brown, Winston Grady-Willis
This event builds upon a rich slate of Black History Month programming and is generously co-sponsored by the History Department and the Black Faculty/Staff Group.
Brown and Grady-Willis have both written critically acclaimed books. Brown's Upbuilding Black Durham: Gender, Class, and Black Community Development in the Jim Crow South (2008) won the Frederick Jackson Turner Award from the Organization of American Historians, which is given annually for an author's first book. Reviews in American History describes it as an "exhaustive study of post-emancipation Durham,North Carolina" that "shows us why Durham was black America's model city."
Grady-Willis's Challenging U.S. Apartheid: Atlanta and Black Struggles for Human Rights, 1960-1977 (2006) earned a great deal of critical praise from premier American history journals. The American Historical Review notes that Challenging U.S. Apartheid "makes a major contribution to the study of modern American civil and human rights movements" and the Journal of Social History contends that it is "an important contribution to the historiography of the black freedom movement" and "an important read for anyone interested in Black Power, Atlanta history, and the internationalization of the African American human rights struggle."
They will discuss their projects (their origins and many challenges), the ways in which their subjects overlap, and the connections we can make between them-historically, theoretically, and methodologically.
They will also engage some of the following questions: what are some common misconceptions northerners have about Southern history and cities? How have understandings of the American South changed over time? In addition, they will provide advice for students working on research projects.
