(Co-sponsored by the Ohio Seminar in Early American History)

Professor Parkinson will discuss how political and communication leaders in the American Revolution linked anti-British stances to colonial fears and prejudices regarding enslaved Africans and Indians, in “Making ‘the cause’ common: Race and Nation in the American Revolution.”

Parkinson has written for the New York Times and his recent book The Common Cause: Race and Nation in the American Revolution (UNC Press, 2016), won the 2017 James A. Rawley Prize from the Organization of American Historians for the best book dealing with the history of race relations in the U.S.
