The topic of civil rights in the United States is never far from the headlines. For almost 250 years, civil rights has remained a complex part of the fabric of America. Helping university students understand the history of civil rights, the important milestones in that ongoing struggle, and what it means for them has been a life’s work of the guest in this episode of Ideas to Innovation Season Two.
Joining our podcast is Dr. Hasan Jeffries, associate professor of history at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, and adviser to ProQuest, part of Clarivate. In the latter role, he helps to shape some of the most trusted and valued ProQuest resources on African American history, including its open Black freedom struggle website, and a new digital resource for colleges and universities called ProQuest Black Studies. Dr. Jeffries teaches, researches, and writes about the African American experience from a historical perspective.
