Pin Oak Colony: A Researched African American Community

Madison County Historical Society

Historian J. Eric Robinson returns to the MCHS Speaker Series with the story of a community of free blacks in Pin Oak Township that was established by the freed slaves of Edward Coles. In addition, Robinson will explore the issues contemporary researchers face when examining pre-Civil War free black communities. Robinson, a graduate of Howard University and the University of Missouri-Columbia, is an assistant professor of history at the St. Louis College of Pharmacy.
