Dr. Hilary N. Green is an Associate Professor of History in the Department of Gender and Race Studies and serves as the co-program director of the African American Studies program.  She also has a partial appointment in American Studies.  She earned her B.A. in History with minors in Africana Studies and Pre-Healing Arts from Franklin and Marshall College; M.A. in History from Tufts University; and Ph.D. in History from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  Her research and teaching interests include the intersections of race, class, and gender in African American history, the American Civil War, Reconstruction, Civil War Memory, the US South, 19th Century America, and the Black Atlantic.  She is currently at work on two book projects – a book manuscript examining how everyday African Americans remembered and commemorated the Civil War, and a documentary reader on the Confederate Memorial debates.  She is also at work on several pieces exploring the enslaved experience at the University of Alabama and other topics on the African American experience during the Long Reconstruction era.

Dr. Green assisted in the development of the Bank of the State Tuscaloosa Bicentennial Exhibit Series: Civil War and Reconstruction which opens at the Transportation Museum on September 17, 2019.
