Dr. Charles Roland

Charles P. Roland, a noted historian of the Civil War and the American military, chats with well-wishers at his 100th birthday party at the Univeristy of Kentucky. He holds a cane made by one of his grandfathers for the other.

Dr. Charles P. Roland, professor emeritus at the University of Kentucky and former president of the Southern Historical Association, was celebrated last month for his 100th birthday. See the blog about him by Tom Eblen (here), and a video of the event is published on YouTube here – complete with an Army color guard.

Dr. Roland’s wife, Allie Lee Roland, passed away a few days ago and the UK History Department staff wanted to alert us about the funeral arrangements.

Saturday, May 5 at Clark Legacy Center, 601 E. Brandon Road, Nicholasville, KY (phone 859-271-1111). Visitation from 2-4 pm and funeral at 4 PM.

We offer our condolences to Dr. Roland and his family.

Teaching of Slavery

In Spotlight on May 18, 2017 by Randolph Hollingsworth Tagged: ,

Eleven graduate students across the nation were selected recently for research fellowships by the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Teaching Tolerance project. The fellowships are part of a multiyear initiative to improve the teaching of slavery in K-12 schools across the nation. The fellows curate historical documents and other teaching materials on American slavery to provide teachers with a resource of free and well-researched materials to use in the classroom.

Three graduate students working with Dr. Kathy Swan at the University of Kentucky College of Education – Carly Muetterties, Ryan Lewis and Kenny Stancil – are part of the cohort. Swan serves on the advisory board for the Teaching Tolerance project, and is the national fellows coordinator.
