Charlottesville in Historical Perspective Series: Workshop: 'SLAVERY MATTERS' - Dr. Peter Wood
Start Date: 10/21/2017Start Time: 10:30 AM
End Date: 10/21/2017End Time: 4:00 PM
Event Description:

CU Boulder Department of History offers

A ‘Charlottesville in Historical Perspective’ Educational Forum Series Free Saturday Workshop:



Racial Enslavement—Twelve Generations of Unpaid Labor—underlies many present-day debates about Diversity, Multiculturalism, and White Supremacy. 

 But for most of us, this topic seems distant and remains something of a mystery.

So this half-day mini-course, SLAVERY MATTERS, will offer a needed overview.

 How did U.S. race slavery begin, and why did it persist so long?

 This immersion/overview is free.  All members of the CU community are welcome, as are other interested people from the Boulder area who can commit the time. LUNCH WILL BE SERVED, thanks to the History Department and the Provost.

 PRESENTER: Peter H. Wood, American History Professor, Duke and CU-Boulder;

winner of the American Historical Association’s Distinguished Teaching Award.

 WHEN: Saturday, October 21, 10:30 to 4:00 (lunch provided)

WHERE: Flatirons Rm., Center for Community (C4C Bldg) on Regent Drive at CU.

SIGN UP: free, but limited to 60.  To register, please go to

  This crash-course/workshop is sponsored by the CU-Boulder History Dept. and by “Impact on Education,” a foundation supporting Boulder Valley School District.

 NOTE: Forum #3, panel discussion on “Monuments and Memory,” will be Nov. 7.

 Peter  H. Wood is the author of Black Majority; Strange New Land: Africans in Colonial America; and Near Andersonville: Winslow Homer’s Civil War.  He is the co-author of a widely used U.S. History survey text entitled Created Equal.  In 2011, Professor Wood received the Asher Distinguished Teaching Award of the American Historical Association.  Retired from teaching early American history at Duke, he lives in Longmont and serves as an adjunct professor at CU-Boulder.
