Faculty Distinguished Lecture, Dan Fountain

Date: Wednesday, March 19, 2014
Time: 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Location: Jones Auditorium

Associate Professor of History Dan Fountain presents the 2014 Faculty Distinguished Lecture, “Slavery, Civil War, & Salvation.”

Join our own historian Dan Fountain as he takes us on a journey into our past.  Fountain follows the testimony of slaves and others to find the answer to a very interesting question:  When did Christianity really take hold in African American communities?  Most historians say that happened before and during the Civil War years, when the message of Afro-Christianity encouraged perseverance and hope for deliverance.  But is that what the historical records actually say?  Follow a history detective in action as he works his way to uncover the power of freedom.

Join us at the Faculty Distinguished Lecture as we celebrate excellence in scholarship and research.
