Tim McMillan is a senior lecturer in African, African American, and Diaspora studies at UNC. He received his Ph.D. at UNC in 1988 in Cultural Anthropology. His research has taken him to Kenya, Haiti, and the US cities of Chapel Hill, NC, Salem, MA, and Charleston, SC in search of remembered but mostly forgotten pasts. In addition to his work at UNC, McMillan spend seven years (1990-1997) teaching at Humboldt State University in far northern California where he served as associate professor and sometimes chair of the Anthropology department. The black and blue tour of the UNC campus is perhaps McMillan’s signal contribution to the university.
