Lecture and Discussion with Dr. Joy Williamson Lott
Engaging in Jim Crow Education: Who is allowed to learn and why? Schools as race-making spaces with societal and group consequences.
Dr. Williamson-Lott's recently published book, Radicalizing the Ebony Tower: Black Colleges and the Black Freedom Struggle in Mississippi, examines issues of institutional autonomy, institutional response to internal and external pressures, and the relationship between historically black colleges and the Civil Rights and Black Power Movements. She has also written about the Black Panther Party's educational programs, the history of social justice in education, and the portrayal of the black freedom struggle in high school history textbooks. She is currently working on a manuscript, tentatively titled Jim Crow Campus: Higher Education and the Southern Social Order in the Mid-Twentieth Century, that examines "regional convergence" with regard to southern higher education between the late 1950s and early 1970s.
