One of the great pleasures of retirement in sitting back and watching your students flourish in the world of scholarship. This is a special delight to me inasmuch as I am, as I have often noted, not really a scholar at all. My latest intellectual grandchild [as it were] is a new book by Lindsey Swindall, one of the best doctoral students to come through the W. E. B. DuBois Department of Afro-American Studies during my long tenure as the inaugural Graduate Program Director. Although I can take no credit at all for Lindsey's fine dissertation, she was my advisee for her first year in the program, and I figure that gives me some claim on everything she has ever done subsequent to that.
Lindsey's latest book, she tells me in an email, is The Path to the Greater, Freer, Truer World: Southern Civil Rights and Anticolonialism, 1937-1955, now published by The University Press of Florida. You can visit the press' web site here I have not yet seen it, but if it is anything like her previous publications, it is well worth looking at.
