An eighteen-month forum, consisting of public lectures, colloquia, and curriculum development activities, on the African-American experience in Savannah and Southeast Georgia during the historical periods of slavery and emancipation.

This project seeks to enhance knowledge of the African American experience among faculty, build collaborations to create innovations in interdisciplinary humanities teaching and learning, and establish an on-going forum for exploring the African American experience in Savannah and Southeast Georgia. Activities will include developing an interdisciplinary learning community of faculty, hosting several nationally recognized scholars for public lectures and colloquia, and creating new teaching and learning resources that can be integrated in the Savannah State curriculum and shared with others. The primary focus will be on the historical periods of slavery and emancipation, a focus suggested in part by commemorations of the Civil War’s 150th anniversary between 2011 and 2015, with other time periods and issues explored in the future. The project should lend momentum for institutionalizing an ongoing program of innovative interdisciplinary activities.
