Clemson University was built by those who could never attend the college. In today's Academic Minute, Clemson's Rhondda Robinson Thomas discusses the enslaved people who helped build the institution and why it’s necessary to paint the full picture of such a history. Thomas is an associate professor of English at Clemson and author of Claiming Exodus: A Cultural History of Afro-Atlantic Identity, 1770-1903. A transcript of this podcast can be found here.
