The University Press of Florida traveled to Indianapolis, Indiana, last week to attend the Association for the Study of African American Life and History annual conference. It was a great opportunity to meet with scholars and display some of our African American studies books.
Several of our authors participated in the conference, including Tameka Hobbs, author of Democracy Abroad, Lynching at Home: Racial Violence in Florida, Cherisse Jones-Branch, author of Crossing the Line: Women’s Interracial Activism in South Carolina during and after World War II, and Gregory Mixon, author of Show Thyself a Man: Georgia State Troops, Colored, 1865–1905.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth!
