The inaugural Fleming-Morrow Distinguished Lecture in African-American History will be delivered on Thursday, March 10, 2016, 5:30 p.m, room 132 in the College of Law by Bancroft Prize-winning historian, Dr. Tomiko Brown-Nagin, the Daniel P.S. Paul Professor of Constitutional Law and Professor of History at Harvard University.
The Fleming-Morrow lecture series will bring leading historians of the African-American experience to the UT campus. Inspired by the university’s “Journey to the Top 25” campaign and commitments to diversity, the Fleming-Morrow series aims to deliver the premier black history lecture in the state of Tennessee and underscores the fundamental understanding that African-American history is American history.
It also honors the distinguished careers and legacies of Drs. Cynthia Griggs Fleming and John H. Morrow, Jr., two pioneer African-American professors in the UT College of Arts and Sciences and History Department.
