The Colored Conventions Project in Three Videos:
"History Matters: The Colored Conventions Project" by Delaware Public Media narrates the once buried story of a nineteenth-century Black political organizing movement that lasted for more than half a century. Arguing that this movement is as important to understanding early racial justice campaigns as the Underground Railroad and the Anti-Slavery movement, Dr. P. Gabrielle Foreman shares why it may have been buried, talks about some of its famous delegates and moments, and narrates how it speaks to movements like #BlackLivesMatter.
This 2015 "Colored Conventions Project" video introduces the highly diverse and interdisciplinary University of Delaware team: its graduate student leadership, its library professionals, and its undergraduate researchers.
This “Undergraduate Research” video highlights the intensive and original research undertaken by undergraduates! More than 1,000 undergraduates across the country have engaged in research as national teaching partners adopt our curriculum. At UD, project team members do even more year round, with opportunities to engage in visualization, assessment, archival research and more!
