Christy Clark-Pujara is an assistant professor of history in the Department of Afro-American Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her research focuses on the experiences of black people in French and British North America in the 17th, 18th and early 19th centuries. She is particularly interested in retrieving the hidden and unexplored histories of African Americans in areas that historians have not sufficiently examined—small towns and cities in the North and Midwest. Some of you may remember Christy from her program at the library in 2018 about Black Suffrage in Wisconsin. We are honored that she will be sharing her knowledge with us again. During this virtual program, Clark-Pujara will provide historical context for the current protests and give a general overview of racism in the creation of the United States.
