The Same Manner as Africa: West African Cultural Survival in the Early Black Atlantic
Michael Dickinson is an assistant professor of history at Virginia Commonwealth University. He was also the 2019-2020 Barra Sabbatical Fellow at University of Pennsylvania's McNeil Center for Early American Studies. His research examines enslaved communities in early Anglo-American cities. His book, "Almost Dead: Slavery and Social Rebirth in the Black Urban Atlantic, 1680-1807" is forthcoming with University of Georgia Press.

The Cabildos Speaker Series was established as a means to:

• Listen to Black voices
• Foreground cutting edge scholarship
• Contextualize United States history in an African Diaspora context
• Highlight the links between academic research and activism.

Sponsored by the School of History, Philosophy, and Religious Studies and the Aberbach History Program Support Fund.
