Marcia Chatelain

Professor, History


Marcia Chatelain’s research focuses on African American life and culture, its intersection with urban history, social movements, gender and the dynamics of race and political participation. In South Side Girls: Growing Up in the Great Migration (Duke University Press, 2015), she recast the exodus of black Southerners to the urban North through the lens of girls and teenage women. In Franchise: The Golden Arches in Black America (Liveright, 2020), she uncovers the relationship among civil rights organization, the federal government and the fast-food industry in post-1968 urban America.
