OAH panel on USA & Africa

Daniel Kilbride's picture

I'd like to propose a panel on American engagement with Africa in the 19th century to the OAH, which meets in Philadelphia in early April, 2019. I will present on how accounts of African exploration by Livingstone, Burton, Du Chaillu and others influenced conversations about race and citizenship during the Civil War and Reconstruction. Please respond to dkilbride@jcu.edu.
