Highlights from a conversation between Dr. Hill and Dr. Chrichlow for the John Hope Franklin Center’s weekly Wednesdays at the Center series.

This conversation between Professors Robert A. Hill. and Michaeline A. Crichlow, Department of African and African American Studies will discuss Hill’s career as a chronicler and historian of the African Diaspora through the writing of his now 13-volume Marcus Garvey and the Universal Negro Improvement Association Papers project. Hill‘s research has taken him through the expanse of the African Diaspora as he combed through personal, public, and private archives to document the life and pan-African influence of Marcus Garvey, one of the leading intellectual voices of the early 20th century. Hill‘s papers are now housed in the John Hope Franklin Research Center at the David M Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library. Professor Hill is at Duke University for a one week fellowship to celebrate the archive and share with the Duke community.
