W. Caleb McDaniel

"Caleb McDaniel's vast insights into the dynamics of American slavery and its detractors illuminated the contours of the ways in which people could escape slavery only to be reenslaved once more. He deftly spoke, entertained, tugged at our heartstrings, and did so in ways that revealed the complexity of conducting historical research. Many speakers just give fait accomplis with discussing the results of their research. But Professor McDaniel traced how he conducted his research -- and that was just as fascinating and integral to uncovering his story -- as the story itself." -- Branden Little, Weber State University
