The sprawling discussion with Andrew Feight, professor of history at Shawnee State – A Secret History of American River People

The sprawling discussion with Andrew Feight, professor of history at Shawnee State

I had a chance to interview Andrew Feight, professor of history at Shawnee State University.

We had a sprawling discussion about the nature of history, who gets to tell it, and whose history gets told.

We also talked about Portsmouth history, its role in the Underground Railroad, labor history, and integration, the Shawnee people who were in the Ohio River Valley when Europeans pushed westward, and the Hopewell, and Adena people who preceded the Shawnee.
