Details

Dr. Arwin Smallwood, chair of the History Department at N.C. A & T left audiences here spellbound in May with his discussion of the fate of the Lost Colony. In his new talk, he focuses on the long history of NC & describes how its people, first limited by the landscape, radically altered it to support their needs. He traces the story of the Native Americans, largely gone from the state, except for small populations; African slaves & their descendants through the struggles of slavery, Jim Crow & the Civil Rights Era and Europeans in their rush to tame the wilderness in a new land.
