Episode 30: Remembering the St. John's Freedmen's Community with Emily Bowles and Hannah Stewart

Description: Interview with Emily Bowles and Hannah Stewart for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) podcast. In this episode, Susan interviews Emily Bowles and Hannah Stewart about their participation in a group research project as students in UNT’s History department. The project focused on a freedmen's community that formed around St. John’s church in Pilot Point, TX. Starting with names etched into the headstones of a neglected cemetery, these students were eventually able to sketch a portrait of a vibrant community of African Americans who lived in North Texas in the early 20th century. Their group then made headlines when they uncovered evidence of racial violence that played a significant role in the community's decline. Emily and Hannah ultimately presented the results of their group's research as an OLLI at UNT class in the Fall 2019 semester.
