About this Event

Join Warren E. Milteer, Jr Ph.d for the virtual debut of his latest book North Carolina’s Free People of Color, 1715 – 1885. This study offers a nuanced look into of the lives of free communities of color who despite living under racial and legal constraints raised families, built communities and created distinct cultures in the Upper South. The book examines the fluidity of relationships among free blacks and whites that often challenge common stereotypes of southern culture during and after slavery.  

Warren E. Milteer, Jr. Ph.d is an assistant professor of history at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and is also the author of Hertford County, North Carolina’s Free People of Color and Their Descendants.
