Fighting for Freedom: Black Activism in the Civil War–era Lower Shenandoah Valley

When: Fri., Aug. 20, 12-1 p.m. 2021

This series offers some of the most compelling sessions that had been proposed for the 2020 Virginia Forum conference, which was cancelled due to the pandemic. Historians Jonathan Berkey (professor of history, Concord University) and Jonathan Noyalas (director of Shenandoah University's McCormick Civil War Institute) discuss Black activism and perspectives on the ways in which African Americans asserted themselves personally and politically in the complex environment of Virginia’s Lower Shenandoah Valley during and after the Civil War.
