With her expertise in writing a broad range of content, combined with my outstanding interpersonal skills and commitment to exploring innovative and newsworthy story ideas and comprehensive topic coverage, Erica is positioned to complete any daunting task. Focusing on the ways African Americans have placed visual, print and other forms of cultural production in the service of the long freedom struggle, her work explores the connections between African American expressive culture, class formation, and popular representations of slavery and abolition. Professor Ball’s first book, To Live an Antislavery Life: Personal Politics and the Antebellum Black Middle Class (Athens: University of Georgia Press, 2012), interrogates the links between early nineteenth-century African American advice literature, free black antislavery activism, and African American processes of middle-class self-fashioning on the eve of the Civil War. Most recently, Professor Ball edited a volume of scholarly essays on Alex Haley’s Roots.
