What do we let ourselves remember of the past? How do our memories and forgettings reflect who we want to be and shape who we can become? In Jim Crow Wisdom: Memory & Identity in Black America since 1940, Yale University historian Jonathan Scott Holloway weaves intimate personal and family memories into his analysis of broad social, cultural, and political phenomena, bringing readers along with him to explore race memory from the beginning of the modern civil rights era to the present. Watch a discussion of this exciting new book with Professor Holloway and Duke Professor of African & African American Studies Mark Anthony Neal.

Sponsored by Duke University’s Forum for Scholars and Publics and the Durham County Library.
