Green.
Dr. Hilary N. Green is an associate professor of history in the Department of Gender and Race studies at the University of Alabama. She has taught at UA since fall of 2014 and has become very respected amongst students and faculty. As part of her research leave, she is the 2020-2021 Vann Professor of Ethics in Society at Davidson College.
Green is the author of Educational Reconstruction: African American Schools in the Urban South, 1865-1890 (Fordham University Press, 2016) as well as articles, book chapters and other scholarly publications. She is the co-series editor of Reconstruction Reconsidered, a University of South Carolina Press series, a book review editor for the Journal of North Carolina Association of Historians, and digital editor of Muster, the online blog for the Journal of the Civil War Era. In addition to several short publications, she is currently at work on a second book manuscript examining how everyday African Americans remembered and commemorated the Civil War.
Green is also well known on campus for providing tours that walk students through UA's dark history of slavery. These tours are an intricate part of the Hallowed Grounds project. Green developed the project in January of 2015 after an interesting comment by one of her students during a lecture: “But Dr. Green, slavery did not exist on our campus.” Since that faithful day, Green has dedicated her time teaching the stories and honoring the memory of those who served as slaves on campus. The Hallowed Grounds walk through tour highlights buildings and land on campus students and faculty would normally pass by without knowing their significance.
"Students get a better appreciation of the spaces that enslaved people labored and lived by walking the campus. A traditional lecture does not permit such understanding" said Green.
