Off the Shelf: Author Talk with Warren Eugene Milteer Jr.
October 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Warren E. Milteer Jr. is an assistant professor of history at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Milteer is set to join UNC Libraries for a virtual discussion about his book, “Beyond Slavery’s Shadow: Free People of Color in the South.”
His book highlights the intense struggles for minorities during the colonial and Civil War period in America. Specifically, the racial groups such as “negroes,” “mulattoes,” “mustees,” “Indians” or simply “free people of color” in the South faced much discrimination even when they gained freedom.
The talk will dive into the resiliency and perseverance people of color had during this time period, in order to survive and provide for their families. Additionally, it will examine the basic human rights and privileges that were stripped from them.
