Maggi Morehouse, associate professor of history, is the first graduate of the African Diaspora Studies program at the University of California, Berkeley, completing her Ph.D. in May 2001. She will teach Southern History at Coastal Carolina University, with a focus on connecting the American South to global diasporas and migrations. Her first monograph, "Fighting in the Jim Crow Army: Black Men and Women Remember World War II," chronicles the "greatest black generation" through the use of archival data as well as 50 personal interviews. She has also contributed chapters to "The Long Civil Rights Movement" and "Civil War America: A Social and Cultural History," as well as journal articles regarding global military policies that affect ethnic and racialized soldiers. She has been working with media providing historical consultation and crafting oral histories into visual short stories on topics ranging from enslaved potters, to Southern women, to African Diaspora migration.
