The inclusive history research team led by Dr. Lauranett Lee was charged with studying: 1). the ways in which Freeman’s work and his public and private views related to the subjects of race and segregation; 2) Freeman’s contributions to the University of Richmond in his roles as a writer, editor, rector and trustee;  and 3) his immediate and lasting influence as a public intellectual. The resulting report, “The Virginia Way”: Race, The Lost Cause, & The Social Influence of Douglas Southall Freeman by Suzanne Slye with Shelby Driskill and Dr. Lee with assistance by Meriwether Gilmore, M.A., Ayele d’Almeida ‘20, and Catherine Franceski ‘20, provides historical context for contemporary consideration of Freeman’s public roles and his work, and an examination of the ways in which he influenced the University of Richmond.

In this session, the research team will give an overview of “The Virginia Way.”
