Prof. Edward Ayers

January 30, 2020 @ 3:00 pm

Southern Journey: The Migrations of the American South, 1790-2020

University of Richmond historian and former president, Dr. Ayers, will discuss how the South has been a place of constant movement, from the arrival of the first white settlers and the influx of scores of people of color through massive slave trading, to the Great Migrations of the early-to-mid 20th century and recent immigration. Appalachia has played an important, and unusual, role in that drama, and Ayers will explore the history of migratory movement across the generations up to the present.
