Join Chancellor's Professor Michele Goodwin and Professor Christopher P. Lehman in conversation about his latest book, Slavery's Reach: Southern Slaveholders in the North Star State, which explores the flow of money from southern slave plantations to Minnesota’s business and real estate properties, exposing the hidden history of northern complicity in building slaveholder wealth.
After the event, copies of Professor Lehman’s book will be available for purchase and signing.
Christopher P. Lehman is a professor of ethnic studies at St. Cloud State University and currently serves as chair of the Department of Ethnic, Gender, and Women's Studies. In the summer of 2011, he was a visiting scholar at Harvard University for the National Endowment for the Humanities's Institute "African American Struggles for Freedom and Civil Rights, 1865-1965." He is the author of six books, the most recent of which is "Slavery's Reach: Southern Slaveholders in the North Star State."
