Congratulations to James B. Wall, a doctoral candidate in history, who was recently awarded the Southern Labor Studies Association's 2018 Robert H. Zieger Award in Southern Labor Studies. The program directory noted that "The award committee felt that your essay “Boss is Still Boss”: Johnson v. City of Albany and the Fight for Affirmative Action in the Black Belt," demonstrated a powerful blend of rigorous
research, compelling argumentation, and concern for social justice." Wall will receive his award at the 2018 Annual Meeting of the SLSA in Athens, Georgia in May.
