Working Group on the History of African Americans at W&L
In August 2013 Washington and Lee President Kenneth P. Ruscio established a working group to examine the role of African Americans in the history of the University. In his instructions to the group, President Ruscio emphasized that its work should include a straightforward look at the history of enslaved people at the institution and should also identify themes, trends and important moments up to the present time.
The working group's co-chairs are:
Michael Hill, Professor of Africana Studies
Barton A. Myers, Associate Professor of History
