How does one address the erasures of southern history? This class is all about those erasures, and specifically the erasures of Black experience . . . and the legacy of racial terrorism that has so shaped that experience in North Carolina. We’ll spend the semester conducting archival research to discover the family histories of lynching victims in the state, and then will trace those families to the present. As we locate descendants, students will visit and interview them, chronicling the stories of their present-day lives. At the same time, we’ll be working closely with community leaders in Warren and Orange Counties, assisting their efforts to build public awareness about—and eventually public memorials to—the all-too-often “forgotten” racial violence. This year’s class will also be visiting Washington, D.C., where we’ll interview descendants of two Warren County lynching victims.
