Andrew Kahrl – The Land Was Ours: How Black Beaches Became White Wealth in the Coastal South, University of North Carolina Press, 2016.

Join us on February 11 at 6pm to discuss The Land Was Ours: How Black Beaches Became White Wealth in the Coastal South (University of North Carolina Press, 2016) with Andrew Kahrl, associate professor of history and African American studies at the University of Virginia. Kahrl’s book examines the history of African American-owned beaches along the Southern seaboard in the 20thcentury and the practice of predatory land speculation that led to black landowners’ dispossession of their properties and beaches. This virtual book club is free and open to the public. A live Q&A will follow a brief presentation.
