No force is more powerful in the telling of history than Hollywood. Over the past century, filmmakers have conveyed a wide range of themes in their interpretations of African Americans soldiers in the Civil War era. Exploring movies such as The Birth of a Nation and onward, Historian Jared Frederick will present a vibrant multimedia presentation that blends past and present.
Historian Jared Frederick is the author of numerous books, including Dispatches of D-Day and Hang Tough. He has appeared on PBS, C-SPAN, and Turner Classic Movies. A former park ranger at Gettysburg National Military Park, Frederick is the host of Reel History on YouTube and an instructor of history at Penn State Altoona. Visit jaredfrederick.com to learn more.
