Marley Brown, the Golden Horseshoe, and African Diaspora Archaeology

Author(s): Maria Franklin

Year: 2015


Marley Brown is little recognized for the tremendous role he played in mentoring those of us who, with his support and encouragement, pursued research on the African diaspora. It wasn’t his style to seek the spotlight, and he was far more concerned with social justice and the positive growth of the discipline which he considered to be inseparable issues. Brown not only opened doors for many of us, he served as a critical sounding board for our fledgling ideas and was generous with his advice. In this paper I recount what I learned from Brown during my years at CW – critical lessons that still matter – and, more broadly, how his mentoring and research priorities have had a lasting effect on African diaspora archaeology.
