Black History Speaker Series: Black and in the Niagara Borderlands Before the Civil War

This session will explore the struggle of transient Blacks to negotiate space for recourse and self-assertion within the crossroads of two contrasting political realms. Join Dr. Dan Broyld as he highlights the idea that Black inhabitants of Rochester, New York and St. Catharines, Canada West possessed transnational identities and strategically positioned themselves near the American-Canadian partition where immigration, movement and interaction occurred.

About the speaker: Dann J. Broyld is an associate professor of African American History at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. He earned his PhD in nineteenth-century United States and African Diaspora History at Howard University. His work focuses on the American-Canadian borderlands and issues of Black identity, migration and transnational relations.
