Aram Goudsouzian is professor of history at the University of Memphis. His books include “Down to the Crossroads: Civil Rights, Black Power, and the Meredith March Against Fear.”

“To study history, then, is not to regurgitate a timeline of events, but to engage in a dynamic process of interpretation, with stakes for how we define ourselves.”
