The Campus Color Line: How College Leadership Shaped Black Freedom

Date and Time: 
Friday, February 18, 2022. 03:30 PM - 05:00 PM
Meeting Location: 
Zoom
Workshop: 
Education and the Humanities
Meeting Description: 

Some of America’s most pressing civil rights issues—desegregation, equal educational and employment opportunities, housing discrimination, and free speech—have been closely intertwined with higher education institutions. Dr. Eddie Cole’s research focuses on college presidents’ historic role in shaping racial policies and practices both inside and outside of the educational sphere. How do we chart the impact of high-profile individuals on the seismic social, cultural and legal changes that have marked the ongoing march towards racial equity? Cole will demonstrate how his archival research conducted at a range of colleges and universities across the United States shaped the didactic thread through The Campus Color Line, a book which sheds light on the important place of college presidents in the struggle for racial parity.
 

Complimentary copies of Cole’s book will be given to the first registrants. RSVP to receive Zoom link >>
