Jacqueline Clark publishes photo essay about racism, will speak in online forum March 5
Jacqueline Clark, professor of sociology, has a photo essay published in The Journal of Appalachia Studies’ most recent special Social Justice Issue.
The article,“Collecting Hate: Confronting Racism through Contemptible Collectibles,” uses a symbolic interactionist and critical race perspective to show how Leslie Whittington, the grandson of a former slave and a firsthand witness to racial segregation and its harmful consequences in Appalachia, decided to collect racist objects and use them to make sense of his own and his family’s racialized experiences. It also considers how counter-stories are important for changing the dominant narrative of the Appalachian region, an important and necessary step in working toward racial and social justice.
Clark also will participate in an online forum, sponsored by the Appalachian Studies Association, on March 5. The Zoom event will run from 2 to 3 p.m. Central Time. Information and registration is available here.
