Developing a Historical Biography and The Vital Importance of Black History Archives (online event)

Join us for a book talk with author Blake Hill-Saya and C. Eileen Watts-Welch as they discuss "Aaron McDuffie Moore, An African American Physician, Educator, and Founder of Durham's Black Wall Street" (2020). Moore was one of the nation's most influential African American leaders in the early 20th century and a co-founder of the North Carolina Mutual Life Insurance Company and Lincoln Hospital in Durham, NC. Hill-Saya and Watts-Welch are both descendants of Moore and this project had deep personal connections. They will share how their research in the NC Mutual archive (jointly held by Duke and North Carolina Central University) and the collections at Shaw University's archives aided in illuminating his life and legacy.

This event is co-sponsored by the John Hope Franklin Research Center and the History of Medicine Collections in the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Duke University.
