A team of undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in HIST 4261/HIST 5100, African Americans in North Texas: A Public History Research Seminar, at the University of North Texas researched and constructed this online museum during the Spring 2018 semester under the supervision of Professors Andrew J. Torget and Todd Moye and teaching assistant Kylie Woodlock.
Working in teams, the students researched the history of St. John's Baptist Church and St. John's Cemetery , the people who are buried there, and the social, religious, geographic, and economic networks to which they were connected. They documented the historical memory of the cemetery and church community and placed the St. John's community in the contexts of local and statewide history during the period from the end of Reconstruction to the Great Depression.
