The very important work being done by AMNESP alum Kerri Greenidge (PhD 2012) was recently featured in this New York Times article. Greenidge is a professor at Tufts University as well as the Co-Director for the African American Trail Project, based out of Tufts’ Center for the Study of Race and Democracy. The project is a public history collaboration between faculty, students, and nonprofits that traces the history of African American residents and sites across Massachusetts. From the projects website: “The African American Trail Project aims to develop African American historical memory and intergenerational community, placing present-day struggles for racial justice in the context of greater Boston’s historic African American, Black Native, and diasporic communities.”
