Last week, the University Press of Florida traveled to Cincinnati, Ohio, to attend the 2017 Association for the Study of African American Life and History Annual Meeting and Conference. We had a fantastic time meeting scholars in the field and displaying our wide selection of  African American studies titles.

Several of our authors attended the meeting, including Gregory Mixon, author of Show Thyself a Man: Georgia State Troops, Colored, 1865–1905Tameka Bradley Hobbs, author of Democracy Abroad, Lynching at Home: Racial Violence in Florida, and Peter Levy, coeditor of the forthcoming book The Seedtime, the Work, and the Harvest: New Perspectives on the Black Freedom Struggle in America,

Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth!
