Today, instead of discussing a new book, I am convening a “New Books in African American Studies Roundtable” to talk with two historians early in their careers about their recent transitions from graduate school into the professorate, and some of the scholarly and public projects they are developing at their respective institutions: Dr. Robert Greene II, Assistant Professor in History at Claflin University, and Dr. Tyler D. Parry, Assistant Professor of African American and African Diaspora Studies at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas. Both Drs. Greene and Parry are incredible examples of what scholarly integrity and kindness are. They also both are graduates of the University of South Carolina’s doctorate program in history!Adam McNeil is a 2nd year PhD in Early African American history at Rutgers University-New Brunswick.

On this episode, I speak to Dr. Tyler D. Parry, professor of African American and African Diaspora studies at UNLV, about his latest project "Jumping The Broom: A Multicultural History" based on his Zora Neale Hurston Prize award-winning paper, "Married in Slavery Time" in the Journal of Southern History. He's also written "The Holy Land of Matrimony," in American Studies (both available on my academia.edu webpage) should provide enough content for an interviewer.
Professor Parry also is a Book Review Editor: Black Perspectives, and Editor of H-Afro-Am.
