Tinesha and Kelley welcome Dr. Tiffany Packer and Alvin C. Jacobs to discuss their goals, motivation and lessons from creating their current exhibition at The Levine Museum of the New South, K(NO)w Justice, K(NO)w Peace.
Dr. Tiffany Packer, a native of Leakesville, Mississippi, obtained her Ph.D. from the Department of History at UNC-Greensboro and currently serves as Visiting Assistant Professor of History at Johnson C. Smith University. In the Spring of 2012, she became the first African American to graduate with a Ph.D. in History from UNC-Greensboro and became the youngest person to ever graduate with a Ph.D. from that same program. Dr. Packer has done extensive research on the 1979 Greensboro Massacre and has a particular focus on Post-Civil Rights activism in black working class communities.
