Contextualizing the N-word Controversy at the University of Kansas
Clayton Finn, African American Studies Major, California State University-Fullerton
My research focuses on George Houser, a leader and pioneer in four social movements throughout his long career: the peace, civil rights, african liberation, and anti-apartheid movements. He was a member of the Union 8 who were a group of seminary students who conscienciouly objected to the draft and served prison time for their civil disobedience. He was also a cofounder and leader of the Congress of Racial Equality from 1942-54. Then he became involved in Africa with the American Committee on Africa through the Defiance Campaign Against Unjust Laws in South Africa.
Hi. I'm planning on attending the OAH conference in New Orleans in 2017. My work focuses on African American and Irish American newspaper editors in the late-nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. I'd love to present on one African American editor's trip to Hawaii and the Philippines in 1902-03, under the auspices of the U.S. government, and his attempt to advocate for African American futures in these new U.S. possessions.
