Scott, Terry Anne

Terry Ann Scott 2.JPG
Terry Anne Scott is an Assistant Professor of United States and African American History at Hood College in Frederick, Maryland.  She earned her doctorate in history at the University of Chicago, where she was awarded the Trustees Fellowship.  Dr. Scott received her undergraduate degree in history from Arizona State University, and graduated with distinction from Southern Methodist University with a Master’s Degree in history.  The Chicago native focuses on African American social and cultural history, political movements, sports, urban history, and the South.  She is currently completing two monographs.  The first explores how lynching, once a strictly punitive and largely clandestine form of political and labor domination, evolved into publicly viewed, well-attended, frequently commercialized exhibitions of racial violence.  Her second monograph is the authorized biography of NBA legend Lenny Wilkens.  Dr. Scott is also the co-editor of the forthcoming anthology Seattle Sports:  Play, Identity, and the Pursuit of Credibility in the Emerald City.  Dr. Scott has worked on multiple public history projects, including an investigation of Freedman’s Cemetery, a nineteenth century African American burial ground in Dallas, Texas.
