History Uncorked: Law and Racial Inequality in the United States

History Uncorked is an evening of wine, wisdom and words, offered in partnership with Natchez Hills Winery.

History Uncorked: Law and Racial Inequality in the United States

Raise a glass to the past!

From the colonial era to the present, owning a home has been the ultimate symbol of the American dream. Society is built around rules relating to property, which set the groundwork for who belongs and who does not, who gets to prosper and pass along wealth to the next generation and who does not. An essential story about racial inequality in the U.S., centuries in the making, concerns property law and how people buy, sell and borrow on their homes. Many of the rules can seem neutral, natural or even invisible, but we live with their legacy every day.

Join Professor Daniel Sharfstein on an exploration of law and racial inequality in the U.S.  Prof. Sharfstein is the Dick and Martha Lansden Chair in Law and professor of history at Vanderbilt University, where he teaches American Legal History, Property and Federal Indian Law. He is the author of two books, Thunder in the Mountains: Chief Joseph, Oliver Otis Howard, and the Nez Perce War and The Invisible Line: A Secret History of Race in America. His research and writing on the legal history of race and citizenship in the U.S. has received numerous awards, including the J. Anthony Lukas Book Prize for narrative nonfiction, a National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship and a Guggenheim Fellowship.


Raise a glass to the past! The History Uncorked series offers an opportunity to engage with a variety of historical topics while enjoying the community of your fellow history aficionados. With each program focusing on a particular topic, followed by a lively discussion in a casual setting, History Uncorked is an evening of wine, wisdom and words, offered in partnership with Natchez Hills Winery.

A portion of all sales will support the Andrew Jackson Foundation’s mission to preserve the home place of Andrew Jackson, create learning opportunities and inspire informed citizenship.
