Christ Unchained: African American Slaves and the Civil War Era
Lecture by Associate Professor of History Dan Fountain
March 20, 2011, 2-4 p.m.
Historic Stagville State Historic Site
5828 Old Oxford Hwy, Durham, N.C.
Associate Professor of History Dan Fountain will present this lecture as part of Historic Stagville’s series commemorating the sesquicentennial of the Civil War. The presentation will draw from the research in his book “Slavery, Civil War, & Salvation: African American Slaves and Christianity, 1830-70.”
Fountain’s research challenges the conventional notion that Christianity was a central facet of enslaved life and instead posits its largely post-bellum origins. He bolsters this argument through surveys of religious behavior and the WPA slave narratives. This lecture will explore the significance of Christianity in the slave community during the Civil War and post-bellum era. For more information contact the site at (919) 620-0120.
