Christine Slaughter has been awarded a Research Fellowship at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library for Summer 2012 for her dissertation project, “Making Images Matter: Social Movements and Representational Campaigns.” She will use the Beinecke’s James Weldon Johnson Collection to investigate the ways early NAACP leaders theorized the relationship between cultural representations and social inequality, and how such theorizations informed their activism.
