That happened here?! The Importance of Researching, Preserving, and Teaching Local Black History in the 21st Century

Professor Felicia Jamison will discuss how African American history and Public History can be used to enact social change in communities, focusing on her work at Drake University and recent local history projects in Des Moines.

Felicia Jamison is an Assistant Professor of History at Drake University. Her research focuses on the lives and experiences of 19th and 20th-century African Americans who lived in the rural South. She is currently working on a monograph that analyzes the strategies Southern Black women used to accumulate property during slavery and purchase land in the Reconstruction period. Dr. Jamison received her B.A. at Mercer University, her M.A. at Morgan State University, and her Ph.D. and Graduate Certificate in Public History at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
