Help us memorialize the late Dr. Julius S. Scott III, a Lecturer in Afroamerican and African Studies at the University of Michigan and author of the groundbreaking book The Common Wind: Afro-American Currents in the Age of the Haitian Revolution. Dr. Scott’s colleagues, students, friends, and family have spearheaded fundraising to create an endowed research fellowship in his memory at the Clements Library, an institution rich in historical resources related to the eighteenth-century Atlantic World and Caribbean.
Join us with a gift today.
