For many years only wealthy American had access to a classically-based liberal arts education. But after the Civil War, newly freed slaves studied and taught Greek and Latin in an era when few believed that black people could or should.

 

This lecture has been co-sponsored by the Departments of Classics and Black Studies, the Hellenic Studies Committee, and the Argyropoulos Endowment in Hellenic Studies.
