Mark Schultz is a historian who teaches at Lewis University in Romeoville, Ill. He received a B.A. from Franciscan University of Steubenville in 1987, an M.A. from University of Georgia in 1989, and a Ph.D. from University of Chicago in 1999, and is the author of The Rural Face of White Supremacy: Beyond Jim Crow (2005). His research interests include oral history and African American History in the Jim Crow South, including interracial kinship, African American farm ownership, and the politics of rural African American education. Schultz has also recorded hundreds of oral history interviews with Georgians, many of which are part of the Southern Oral History Program (SOHP) Collection at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Schultz made these SOHP recordings in collaboration with Adrienne Petty for their NEH-funded project, Breaking New Ground: A History of African American Farm Owners Since the Civil War. Their collection within the SOHP includes more than 300 interviews with black farm owners and their descendants from Maryland to Oklahoma.
