Dr. Christy Clark-Pujara published in Middle West Review

In her latest publication in Middle West Review, Dr. Christy Clark-Pujara writes “Black people’s existence, resistance to bondage, and experience of freedom were rarely acknowledged or centered in Midwestern scholarship focused on the early American Republic or antebellum era.

Dr. Clark-Pujara notes that the study of Black Midwestern experiences is a “relatively recent” one.
