News on Fellows: Congratulations Post-Doc Fellow Talitha LeFlouria!

October 20, 2015

Our own post-doctoral fellow, Talitha LeFlouria was awarded the Leticia Brown Woods book prize last month at the 100th anniversary of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, the organization founded by our namesake, Carter G. Woodson (it was then the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History).  Today’s edition features substantial coverage of Talitha and her prize-winning book, Chained in Silence: Black Women and Convict Labor in the New South (University of North Carolina Press). I paste the link for those who may have not have seen the story.  CONGRATULATIONS again to Talitha!
