In Conversation with Holly Pinheiro, Jr.

Join M Judson on Thursday, June 16th at 5:30 pm for an In Conversation event with Holly Pinheiro, Jr.!

HOLLY A. PINHEIRO JR. is an assistant professor of African American history at Furman University. He is the author of articles in American Nineteenth Century History, the African American Intellectual History Society’s Black Perspectives blog, and the Journal of the Civil War Era‘s Muster blog.

His book tells the stories of freeborn northern African Americans in Philadelphia struggling to maintain families while fighting against racial discrimination. Taking a long view, from 1850 to the 1920s, Pinheiro shows how Civil War military service worsened already difficult circumstances due to its negative effects on family finances, living situations, minds, and bodies.

This is a free event!
