Hello from Novi, Michigan
Good evening everyone - I’m here from Baltimore, MD.
I noticed you’re recording this meeting. I may need to step out for a family thing, so I wondered: will the recording be available to us somewhere?

Hi Jewon from CLE!!!
Hi, Marshall Cossman here
Thanks for coming out everyone!!!
That seems par for the course for so many, Hal.
Clements does a great job of posting the program within hours. It has been great as was able to share with fellow colleagues (e.g. woman’ suffrage).
Thanks for the kind words, Barbara, we try to post the recordings to our website in a timely fashion.

I'll have to drop for my next meeting, but this was really great! Thank you Derrick, Martha, Ben and Paul for taking the time!
My question builds a bit on Professor Vinson's comments: I hear really good things from both presenters pertaining to citizenship as a site of contestation, community, and resistance. But I'm wondering about how racial terror figures into the contorted forms of freedom and citizenship which were evolving from right before the Civil War into emancipation and beyond? What would this relationship between citizenship, white supremacist terrorism, and power mean for sustaining black citizenship going forward?
