This colloquium is part of CEHV's Civil Discourse for Citizenship initiative, which provides opportunities for students to engage in vigorous and respectful discussion anchored by "the 4Cs": Be Curious, Be Charitable, Be Conscientious, Be Constructive. The panel discussion will be moderated by two of our undergraduate Civil Discourse Fellows.

Professor Tamika Nunley (History, Cornell University)
Tamika Nunley is Associate Professor of History focused on the history of slavery, African American women's and gender history, the early Republic, and the American Civil War. Her first book, At the Threshold of Liberty: Women, Slavery, and Shifting Identities in Washington, D.C. (University of North Carolina Press, 2021) reveals how African American women—enslaved, fugitive, and free—imagined new identities and lives beyond the oppressive restrictions intended to prevent them from experiencing liberty, self-respect, and power. This book was named the 2021 Letitia Woods Brown Book prize winner for best book in African American women's history and the 2021 Pauli Murray Book prize winner for best book in Black intellectual history. She is currently finishing a second book, The Demands of Justice: Enslaved Women, Capital Crime, and Clemency in Early Virginia, 1662-1865 with the University of North Carolina Press.
