With the beginning
of Black History Month today, "IU Home Pages" features
the work of two IU professors. John McCluskey's forthcoming
historical novel envisions abolitionist Frederick Douglass
at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair on a warm August day and
James Madison's recent book chronicles another August day
37 years later, when a lynching tree in America's heartland
serves as a symbol of one country's wrenching struggle toward
racial equality. A number of notable speakers will recount
their own stories of that struggle in public presentations
at IU throughout the month of February.
