Miller Center Virtual Speaker Series: A Celebration of Chris Bonner's new book "A New Republic: Black Protest and the Creation of American Citizenship"

Friday, November 6, 2020 - 12:00 PM
 
The Miller Center presents a celebration of Christopher Bonner's new book A New Republic: Black Protest and the Creation of American Citizenship. Discussion with Christopher Bonner (University of Maryland), Samantha Seeley (Richmond University) and Quincy Mills (University of Maryland).
 
Bonner’s book suggests that by claiming that they were citizens, Black Americans stood at the center of creating the very meaning of American citizenship. Free African Americans used newspapers, public gatherings, and conventions to make arguments about who could be a citizen, the protections citizenship entailed, and the obligations it imposed.
