Department of History Recognition Ceremony

Friday, May 12, 2:30 p.m.
College Park Baptist Church

Graduating and award-winning history students will be honored at our department ceremony Thursday, Friday, May 12, 2017 at 2:30 p.m. at College Park Baptist Church. Details have been sent to December graduates and students who have applied to graduate in May and August by email.

The speaker for the ceremony this year is Dr. Tiffany Packer. Dr. Packer, a native of Leakesville, Mississippi, obtained her Ph.D. from the Department of History at UNC-Greensboro and currently serves as Visiting Assistant Professor of History at Johnson C. Smith University. In the Spring of 2012, she became the first African American to graduate with a Ph.D. in History from UNC-Greensboro. Dr. Packer has done extensive research on the 1979 Greensboro Massacre and has a particular focus on Post-Civil Rights activism in black working class communities. Some of her most recent work has included the problems of policing in communities of color. Dr. Packer, along with her Public History class, recently co-curated the ground-breaking exhibition, “K(no)w Justice, K(no)w Peace,” at the Levine Museum of the New South located in Charlotte, North Carolina.
