Two of our American Studies faculty, Bill Ferris, Associate Director of UNC’s Center for the Study of the American South and Marcie Cohen Farris, Associate Professor of American Studies invited mayors from five black towns to inaugurate a collaborative venture intended to draw attention to and bring resources to these historically significant places. Mayors from Grambling, Louisiana; Eatonville, Florida; Mound Bayou, Mississippi; and Hobson City and Tuskegee, Alabama participated. Learn more about the event in this feature by WUNC.
