dc.descriptionThese eight “Conversations” between Ted Delaney and four faculty interlocutors constitute an oral history memoir of the remarkable life and career of Professor Delaney. Born in Lexington in the waning Jim Crow era, he began working for Washington and Lee as a custodian, then as a lab technician. With the coming of the Civil Rights Movement and desegregation he was able to take a degree in History at W&L, go on to graduate school, then return to W&L as one of its first African American faculty and the first Black chair of the History Department. The conversations thread this narrative through the histories of Washington and Lee, Lexington, and national movements such as the campaign for Civil Rights and desegregation. Separate conversations address Ted’s views on teaching and the creation of an Africana Studies Program, his research interest in desegregation in southwestern Virginia, and Washington and Lee’s distinctive relationship to the legacies of the Civil War and Robert E. Lee. This resource includes an appendix and an index for all of the conversations. The videos of these interviews are available in Coll. 0525 - Theodore C. (Ted) DeLaney, Jr. Collection.en_US
