The Department of History at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville is proud to announce the establishment of the Fleming-Morrow Distinguished Lecture Series in African-American History. Named in honor of Drs. Cynthia Griggs Fleming and John H. Morrow, Jr., two pioneer African-American professors in the UTK College of Arts and Sciences, this bi-annual lecture series aims to bring outstanding historians of the African-American experience to campus for two free public lectures during the fall and spring semesters, respectively. Funded by the newly established Fleming-Morrow Endowment in African-American History through the UT Foundation, the lecture series is part of a long-term initiative to increase the national and international profile of the UTK History Department as it relates to African-American history and institutionalize black history at the university.
Please consider donating to the Fleming-Morrow Endowment Fund. More information about the series, and how to donate, can be found here.
