A new event has been added to the Archives Week calendar:

Earlie E. Thorpe Memorial Lecture

Where: Historic Stagville, 5828 Old Oxford Highway, Durham, NC

When: Sunday, October 16, 2011, 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Dr. Malinda Maynor Lowery, Assistant Professor of History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, will deliver this year’s Earlie E. Thorpe Memorial Lecture at Historic Stagville. Dr. Lowery recently published Lumbee Indians in the Jim Crow South: Race, Identity, and the Making of a Nation (University of North Carolina Press). This annual lecture at Historic Stagville is given in honor of Dr. Thorpe, an important scholar of the history of African Americans, who taught at North Carolina Central University from 1962 to 1989. Dr. Lowery’s lecture will focus on the history of the Lumbees in North Carolina, including a discussion of Henry Berry Lowry, who led a multiracial band of outlaws during the Civil War and Reconstruction. The program is free and open to the public. In addition to the lecture the jazz band Quintessence, led by Quinton Parker, will perform. Refreshments will be served.
