Visiting Speakers: Jack Hitt and Chenjerai Kumanyika
Join us for a talk by Jack Hitt and Chenjerai Kumanyika, co-creators of Gimlet Media’s new Peabody award-winning history podcast “Uncivil.”
About Uncivil: “Uncivil brings you stories that were left out of the official history of the Civil War, ransacks America’s past, and takes on the history you grew up with. We bring you untold stories about resistance, covert operations, corruption, mutiny, counterfeiting, antebellum drones, and so much more. And we connect these forgotten struggles to the political battlefield we’re living on right now. The story of the Civil War — the story of slavery, confederate monuments, racism — is the story of America.”
More details coming soon!
This event is co-sponsored with the College of Arts, Media and Design; the Program in African and African-American Studies; the School of Journalism; and the departments of Communication Studies and History.
