Historians on TV: YouTube Lectures

The other day I came across some great lectures from a recent conference, "The Long Civil Rights Movement: Histories, Politics, Memories," sponsored by the Southern Oral History Program at UNC-Chapel Hill.

Here is the conference website, and a YouTube channel with lectures from the conference. One of my former professors, Gerald Horne, delivered a stunning lecture, full of history and informed critiques of U.S. history and public policy. I've included Horne's lecture below, as well as segments from several others.

Here's part of a lecture from Kevin Gaines, whose books on Black leadership and African Americans and Ghana are must reads. His talk is followed by a segment from Mary Dudziak, whose recent books should be on your reading list as well.
