Led by Dr. Leslie Picca and Dr. Ruth Thompson-Miller. We'll examine the contemporary images of American life after slavery ended and before the 1960s Civil Rights Movement, and how these images compare to reality. We'll also explore how this moment in history impacts every single one of us today. Dr. Ruth Thompson-Miller is an assistant professor of sociology and Dr. Leslie Picca is an associate professor of sociology. They have collaborated on numerous articles on racial relations, and are the authors of an upcoming book on Segregation Stress Syndrome (Rowman and Littlefield Publishers).
