        Dylan C. Penningroth, Historian | MacArthur Fellows Program

        In this interview, 2012 MacArthur Fellow Dylan C. Penningroth discusses his work as a historian examining the shifting concepts of property ownership and kinship for African Americans during and after the era of slavery. In his book The Claims of Kinfolk (2003), he illuminates the informal customs used by slaves in the antebellum South to recognize ownership of property, even while they were themselves considered by law to be property at the time. This resource is part of the MacArthur Fellows Program Collection.
