Professor Colin Morris and Tashae Smith ’17 were featured in an interview posted on National Public Radio (NPR) online platforms on Wednesday, November 29, 2017. 

During her time as an undergraduate, Smith, a history major, partnered with Morris to research the evolution of slavery and the African-American community in Newburgh, New York. Smith’s research provided previously unknown information about the African-American community that surrounds Washington’s Headquarters, which overlooks the Hudson River in Newburgh. The history student’s research was then adapted into a walking tour with the help of the Sound and Story Project of the Hudson Valley, and most recently, served as the curriculum for a workshop hosted by Teaching the Hudson Valley Summer Institute.
