Jasmin C. Howard

I am a second year doctoral student studying African American, United States and African History. My research interests focus on the activism of Black students during the Civil Rights Movement and Black Power Movement. I am particularly interested in the activism of Black students in North Carolina and how race, gender, class and respectability influenced their activism and the subsequent commemoration of their activism. I am also interested in the use of oral history and other methods to address erasures and silences in the traditional archives concerning Black women and Black people as a whole.
