By training and spirit, Glenn Hinson is a folklorist, one who works with communities to explore grassroots creativity and the many ways that it holds meaning. Though he is white, much of his work over the years has been with Black communities, whose members have repeatedly schooled him on the simple fact that any exploration of artistry must address the critical and all-encompassing context of racism. Their challenge led to the creation of the Descendants Project, a collaborative initiative in which students and communities work together to address racial histories. This FYS extends this initiative by focusing on a single NC county.
