Ideas:
“  I am retired. I’m writing a book on the idea of equality among African American intellectuals in the early twentieth century. My articles in progress include an expansive study of appellate decisions regarding slaves held in trust, a study of Klan violence in North Carolina in the 1860s and 1870s and their appeals to the rule of “law,” a study of the micro trials in a suspected slave rebellion in North Carolina in 1802, and several shorter pieces, on tortious interference with an expectancy and controlling executors’ discretion.  ”
