CONVIVIUM LUNCHEON AND PROGRAM – Thursday, November 1, 2018
You are cordially invited to luncheon with the Oneonta Faculty Convivium on Thursday, November 1, from noon to 1 p.m., in Le Café, Morris. Dr. Howard Ashford, Assistant Professor of Africana and Latino Studies, will present a talk titled, “Jim Crow’s Children: Shaping Mississippi’s Color Line.”
Abstract: How did Afro-American women impact Mississippi’s color line? Jim Crow’s Children examines the interracial relationships between Afro-American women, white men, and white women and how these relationships complicated the notions of race and redemption in Mississippi’s post-Civil War society focusing primarily on Attala and Neshoba County. Using primary source material including governmental records, diaries, and photographs, the research explores the subtle yet important ways in which Afro-American women impacted Southern racial politics.
Seating is limited. To reserve a seat, please call X2517 before October 30. Vegetarian meals are available.
