Dr. Ted Delaney is the next speaker in “The Civil War and the Forging of Character,” a four-year lecture series presented by The Lovett School in cooperation with the Atlanta History Center.
The series was initiated to mark the sesquicentennial of the Civil War and the Battle of Atlanta. Its purpose is to bring to the Atlanta area speakers and scholars who can engage students, parents, faculty, alumni, and the community at large on critical matters of character and integrity as demonstrated during this defining period in our nation’s history. All lectures in this series are free and open to the public.
Delaney will speak on “Frederick Douglass, Millennialism, and the Civil War” on Wednesday, April 10 at 6 p.m. at The Lovett School.
DeLaney is presently writing the story of school desegregation in four Virginia counties, a result of an oral history project involving extensive interviews with former public school students, teachers, and administrators in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education decision.
His research and teaching interests include colonial North America, comparative slavery in the Western hemisphere, African-American history, civil rights, and gay and lesbian history.
DeLaney received his Ph.D. from the College of William and Mary and his B.A. from Washington and Lee University, where he serves as the head of the History Department.
