As part of the Learning from History Series, Professor Dan Kallgren will lead a discussion of Adam Domby’s book, The False Cause: Fraud, Fabrication, and White Supremacy in Confederate Memory.

Domby explores how fabricated narratives about the Civil War’s cause, Reconstruction, and slavery shaped the Lost Cause myth and obscured the past, and been used to buttress white supremacy in ways that resonate to this day.

This event is being held both in-person at Cofrin Library Room 304 and virtually via Zoom.

Domby’s book is available electronically from the Cofrin Library.

This event is sponsored by the Department of History and the Cofrin Library.
