Black on the Midwestern Frontier: From Slavery to Suffrage in Wisconsin
April 25, 2019 @ 3:45 pm - 5:00 pm
“Black on the Midwestern Frontier: From Slavery to Suffrage in Wisconsin”
Speaker: Christy Clark-Pujara
Assistant Professor, Afro-American Studies, University of Wisconsin-Madison
Christy Clark-Pujara is a historian whose research focuses on the experiences of black people in French and British North America in the 17th, 18th and early 19th centuries. She is particularly interested in retrieving the hidden and unexplored histories of African Americans in areas that historians have not sufficiently examined—small towns and cities in the North and Midwest. She contends that the full dimensions of the African American and American experience cannot be appreciated without reference to how black people managed their lives in places where they were few.
Last Thursday of the month @ 3:45pm, in Room 3401 Sterling Hall, Gender and Women’s Studies Conference Room unless otherwise noted.
