Associate Professor of History, Washington and Lee University
April 10, 2013, at The Lovett School
"Frederick Douglass, Millennialism, The Civil War, and Emancipation"
The Lovett School, an independent school in Atlanta, presents "The Civil War and the Forging of Character", a four-year lecture series presented in cooperation with the Atlanta History Center to mark the sesquicentennial of the Civil War and the Battle of Atlanta.
The purpose of the lecture series is to bring to the Atlanta area speakers and scholars who can engage all of us—students, parents, faculty, alumni, and the community at large—on critical matters of character and integrity as demonstrated during this defining period in our nation’s history.
Ted DeLaney is presently writing the story of school desegregation in four Virginia counties, a result of an oral history project involving extensive interviews with former public school students, teachers, and administrators in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education decision.
Dr. DeLaney received his Ph.D. from the College of William and Mary and his B.A. from Washington and Lee University, where he serves as the head of the History Department.
Dr. DeLaney's lecture--and all lectures in the series--are free and open to the public. Reservations are requested: (404) 262-3032, ext. 1717.
