Hillary Moss

Professor of Black Studies, Amherst College

Drawing on social, cultural, intellectual, and political history, I teach about the African American experience from the slave trade to the present. I offer courses in Black Studies, African American history, Urban History, and Education. Students in my seminar “Slavery and the American Imagination” explore historical and literary depictions of the “peculiar institution” to uncover connections between America’s racial past and its racial present.
