Apologies for cross-postings. I am hoping to submit a panel proposal for the 2019 Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) conference to be held October 2-6, 2019 in North Charleston, South Carolina.
I apologize for this self promotion but in case it might be of interest, I'd like to share the news of a new online exhibit that explores the life of Samuel Williams, a man who survived a South Carolina childhood in bondage to write about it years later in a pseudonymously authored narrative, correctly attributed to him here for the first time.
I know some of you will be interested in the following comments from the unveiling of a historical marker in honor of the 1868 South Carolina Constitutional Convention, which was a political landmark in the history of the post-slavery United States.
