Slavery in the Appalachian Mountains

Wednesday, April 18th, 6 pm 
Appalachian Hall room 161

Professor Emeritus Wilma Dunaway of Virginia Tech University will give a lecture on her voluminous research on Slavery in the Appalachian Mountains.

A native of Tennessee, Professor Dunaway employs her interdisciplinary background to offer a multi-perspective view of slavery in the Appalachians. Dr. Dunaway was invited to give the Distinguished Alumni Lecture at the University of Tennessee, where she graduated with three degrees as a first-generation college student from a racially mixed familial background. Her critique on the region includes her complex familial history along with her early Civil Rights activism in the Sixties as a student and later as an activist and scholar.
