Silent Protest-Silent Sam, Keynote Address, Sharon Holland, University of North Carolina

To culminate the Plantation Modernity Symposium hosted by the Clemson Humanities Hub, Dr. Sharon Holland of The University of North Carolina will deliver an address titled "Silent Protest-Silent Sam." Dr Holland will work consider ongoing campus struggles at UNC to reconcile the present with the past and then remark upon the collection and the parsing of the phrase “plantation modernities” – is it one modernity or is several? Do they proliferate?
