The Hazards of Concealed Firearms on Campus:
A Statement by the KU Department of African and African-American Studies
In a recent blog post published by H-Afro-Am, Julia Bernier offers thought provoking reflections on Manisha Sinha’s recent book, The Slave’s Cause: A History of Abolition. Bernier believes that Sinha does well to highlight abolitionists’ uncompromising demands for social transformation, and that in so doing Sinha suggests links between past and present social movements.
