Chesapeake Regional Scholars
Summer Seminar in African American Studies

Over the past three years, the Carter G. Woodson Institute for African-American and African Studies at the University of Virginia has invited some 35 scholars from colleges, universities, and public history sites throughout the Chesapeake Region -- Delaware, Maryland, the District of Columbia, Virginia, and North Carolina -- to participate in a Ford Foundation-funded summer seminar devoted to the "rethinking" of African American Studies.

This year, we are hosting a two-day reunion of alumni from previous seminars to coincide with the opening of the fourth and final seminar, "Building an African-American Digital History Archive: A Workshop for Principal Investigators and Project Teams."

Reunion 2000 (June 16-17)

Seminar 2000 (June 16-23)

Funded by a generous grant from the Ford Foundation.
