Speakers

Bernard Wilson
Independent researcher and author
Mr. Wilson began his humanities research as part of a personal genealogical investigation into his family. He has spent the past twenty-three years researching Tucson’s African-American pioneers and community. His first book, "The Black Residents of Tucson and Their Achievements: A Reference Guide," exposed that Tucson had a large and thriving African- American community that included mining millionaires. His subsequent publications derived from the research for his book. Currently, his research focuses on the individual lives of the Old Pueblo’s African-Americans.
