Writers LIVE! Kidada Williams

Historian Kidada Williams will look at the Reconstruction Era through the lens of African Americans in the South.  The author contends that post-Civil War histories have too often eschewed the voices of formerly enslaved people as they navigated continued oppression and white supremacist violence.   

Kidada Williams is a history professor at Wayne State University.   She is the author of They Left Great Marks on Me and host and producer of the podcast Seizing Freedom
