Drawing on her research on campus histories of slavery at the University of Alabama and Davidson College, Dr. Hilary Green explores the need for recovering and untangling institutional campus histories of race and slavery. From alternate campus tours and digital storytelling projects to curriculum, the recovery of the enslaved campus experience and creation of inclusive narratives of the past are necessary for advancing institutional reconciliation efforts in the present. 

Hilary Green is the James B. Duke Professor of Africana Studies at Davidson College. She earned her B.A. in History with minors in Africana Studies and Pre-Healing Arts from Franklin &  Marshall College; M.A. in History from Tufts University; and Ph.D. in History from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  She is the author of Educational Reconstruction: African American Schools in the Urban South, 1865-1890 (Fordham University Press, 2016).  She is currently writing a second book manuscript exploring how everyday African Americans remembered and commemorated the Civil War from 1863 to the present. In addition, she serves as the Chief Reader Designate for AP US History, 2022-2023, the Digital Media Editor responsible for Muster, the blog for the Journal of Civil War Era, and the co-series editor with J. Brent Morris of the Reconstruction Reconsidered, a University of South Carolina Press book series.


This event is sponsored by the Office of the Provost, the Office of the President, the Office of Diversity Equity and Inclusion, the History  Department, American Studies, and Africana Studies.
