Beyond the Byline, Episode 5: The AU Working Group on the Influence of Slavery

(02/18/19 7:39pm)

On this week's episode of Beyond the Byline, host Evan Margiotta talks with The Eagle's managing editor of opinion Nickolaus Mack about his research on AU founder Bishop John Fletcher Hurst and Hurst's connections to slavery, which included owning at least one enslaved individual. Mack's columns about Hurst led to the creation of a university group that studied the University's ties to the institution of slavery and presented their findings in a roundtable on Jan. 30.
