In this special preview episode of a new, upcoming podcast series from Uncomfortable Oxford, we are delighted to welcome Dr. Alexandria Russell and to hear her talk on the memorialisation of African American women who lived through the Jim Crow era.

Focusing on the legacy of four incredible black women (Phillis Wheatley, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman and Celia Dial Saxon) Dr. Russell invites us to see the memorialisation of these four women alongside the creation of a parallel kind of American memorialisation: the construction of Confederate monuments.

The content for this episode is based on a lecture live-streamed on our Facebook page on October 22nd, 2020. This podcast is brought to you by Uncomfortable Oxford, a social enterprise run by doctoral students at the University of Oxford that aims to raise awareness and discourse about 'uncomfortable' issues in the modern world.
