The Hampton dropout who is now a department chair: Dr Carey Latimore

Post By RelatedRelated Post

In this video, Dr Boyce Watkins speaks with Dr. Carey Latimore, chair of the History Department at Trinity University. Dr. Latimore talks about how he went from being a dropout of Hampton University to later becoming a highly-respected scholar.

Additionally, Dr. Latimore talks about intellectual freedom and the ability of scholars to disagree without becoming disagreeable. The interview also talks about the importance of black scholarly mentors and how so many students are harmed when universities do not hire African American faculty or give them tenure.

This interview answers the question: What’s it like to be a black scholar in America today? Also, should black people commit themselves to trying to be one politically-unified force or should there be space for diversity of thought in the community?
