Brandon R. Byrd - 'The Black Republic' (POSTPONED)

This event has been POSTPONED due to the snow. We will update this page with the new date when it is available.

In The Black Republic, Brandon R. Byrd explores the ambivalent attitudes that African American leaders in the post-Civil War era held toward Haiti, the first and only black republic in the Western Hemisphere. Spanning the Reconstruction, post-Reconstruction, and Jim Crow eras, Byrd recovers a crucial and overlooked chapter of African American internationalism and political thought.

Brandon R. Byrd teaches history at Vanderbilt University.
