Kami Fletcher Ph.D.

Dr. Fletcher is an Assistant Professor of African American History at Delaware State University. She received her Ph.D. in History from Morgan State University in 2013. Her research centers on African American burial grounds and late 19th/early 20th century Black male and female undertakers. She has published work in journals, anthologies, and scholarly blog sites. She frequently blogs for the African American Intellectual History Society at www.aaihs.org. Currently she is co-editing a volume, *Till Death Do Us Part: Ethnic Cemeteries as Borders Uncrossed*, which centers on the internal and/or external drives among ethnic, religious and racial groups to separate their dead. She is also working on a forthcoming book which positions African American cemeteries as the point where life and death meet arguing that this meeting point is a symbol of Black freedom from White control. She has taught courses on African American history, U.S. History, American studies, slave plantations, Black migration, and women and gender studies.
