People in the South have never stayed still for long. From the founding of the nation to today, people have moved to, through, and from the South. By tracing these movements in the eras of slavery, segregation, and the present, we trace the countours of Southern history over two centuries.

Edward Ayers, Ph.D., is the Tuceker-Boatwright Professor of the Humanities and President Emeritus, University of Richmond.

This 2018 Charles O. Jackson Memorial Lecture is presented by the University of Tennessee Department of History and hosted by the East Tennessee Historical Society.
