6:00 pm • (Zoom broadcast)
Speaker • Dr. Alicia Jackson, '95
Sponsored by the Attaway Professorships in Civic Culture
Q & A facilitated by Dr. Jama Grove
Centenary alumna and Associate Professor of History at Covenant College, Dr. Alicia Jackson, will discuss her new book, The Recovered Life of Isaac Anderson, which reconstructs the lost history of a man born enslaved by his father who became a religious and community leader in the South. A micro-history, Anderson's biography traces strategies used by Black southerners to challenge growing restrictions of their rights during the Reconstruction Era through the early twentieth century. Known as the nadir of race relations, Anderson’s story and those of the countless other Black leaders “lost” to history represents Black resistance as Jim Crow legislation was becoming synonymous with the region.
