Seth Epstein teaches history in the High-Achieving Mocs LLC. His research interests include Southern Jewish history, urban history, and the history of tolerance in the urban Jim Crow South. His article in Southern Jewish History examined how Jews and non-Jews worked together to disassociate Asheville, North Carolina from the fascistic Silver Shirt movement, which was headquartered in the city. The focus of his next research project is North Carolina’s pioneering but neglected Bureau of Work Among Negroes, which was part of the state’s Department of Public Welfare between the 1925 and 1961. Dr. Epstein teaches modern world history and courses in American history, including American memory and immigration.
