Hughes to Present on Re-Segregation of Little Rock Nov. 7
The University Libraries' and Graduate School and International Education's Graduate Student Speaker Series continues this semester with Airic Hughes, a doctoral candidate and graduate assistant in the Department of History.
Hughes will present "Through the Heart of the City: I-630 and the Re-segregation of Little Rock" at 5 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 7, in the Walton Reading Room of Mullins Library. This event is free and open to the public.
"U.S. Interstate 630 intentionally re-segregated Little Rock and erased the city's social memory of racial violence," Hughes said. "This true story reveals how and why systems of white supremacy recreated modern Little Rock."
The Graduate Student Speaker Series debuted in fall 2018 as a platform for students to share the research they have conducted using Special Collections materials. Graduate students from all majors who are interested in presenting on the research they have done using Special Collections materials are encouraged to visit the speaker series webpage.
