Call My Name: African Americans in Early Clemson University History

An ethnographic project that seeks to explore the lived experiences of Native Americans and African Americans and their contributions to Clemson University’s history.

Call My Name: African Americans in Early Clemson University History: By creating and nurturing this humanities community, we seek to illuminate how the story of African Americans in early Clemson University history is a significant narrative that intersects with the complex race relations that undergird the history of the Upstate region, the state of South Carolina, and the nation. The community-based programs co-sponsored by our partners, the oral histories, and the crowdsourcing website will not only offer the public opportunities to participate in the project, it will also give them access to digitized primary documents associated with Call My Name that enable them to learn about and contribute insights into the racial and socio-political complexities of Clemson history.
