In case you missed it, watch African American Studies Professor Mari Crabtree’s Public Lecture: “Lynching’s Afterlives: Memory, Trauma, and the Sensibility of the Blues”

Join this discussion of Professor Crabtree talking about her upcoming book with the Yale University Press: “My Soul is a Witness ­­­­­traces the long afterlife of lynching in the South through the traumatic memories it left in its wake. By interweaving the stories of people and places haunted by lynching, Mari N. Crabtree unearths how Black southerners lived through and beyond these horrors, offering a theory of Black collective trauma and memory rooted in the ironic spirit of the blues sensibility—a spirit of misdirection and cunning that blends joy and pain.” -Professor Mari Crabtree
