Info

We invite CHS members and visitors to join us for a brown bag lunch talk with Kevin S. Hooper, PhD Candidate of the University of Oklahoma. Kevin is a New England Regional Fellowship Consortium (NERFC) fellow who will be conducting research here this fall.

Did you know African American activists used the issue of African colonization to help support their claims to U.S. citizenship?

In this brown bag talk Kevin will explore how African American activists used the issue of African colonization to develop a galvanized national network to support their claims to U.S. citizenship. He argues that state governments and American Colonization Society (ACS) auxiliary organizations on the state level were settler colonial enterprises that led African Americans to appeal to the federal government directly to assert their claim to U.S. citizenship. Kevin will share the results of his research at the CHS with us during this informal presentation.

We will provide coffee and dessert; bring your lunch to enjoy during the talk. Please RSVP by Monday, October 7.
