Black Classicism in the United States
For many years only well-born Americans had access to a classically–based liberal arts education. But after the Civil War newly freed slaves aspired to the same. Thus arose black classicists who studied and taught Greek and Latin successfully in an era when few believed that black people could or should.
This lecture has been co-sponsored by the Departments of Classics and Black Studies, the Hellenic Studies Committee, and the Argyropoulos Endowment in Hellenic Studies.
