Dr. Adam Wilson joined the Office of Educational Outreach at the University of Tennessee at Martin in 2011 as faculty member of the Depattment of History and Philosophy. More recently, Dr. Wilson took on the role of Director of our online courses and programs in the Summer of 2016. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Mississippi with his major area of research being African American history with particular interest in the "long civil rights movement" and African Americans' service in the American military throughout America's wars. In 2015, Dr. Wilson's first manuscript, African American A1my Officers of World War I: A Vanguard of Equality in War and Beyond, was published. The monograph addresses the roles played by African Americans officers of World War I in fighting for civil rights as they confronted discrimination and bigotry on the home front and abroad in their military service and their continued efforts to end segregation and inequality after the war. Dr. Wilson also has previously traveled to the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial, Kansas City, Missouri, to present a paper on World War I African American officers for the Western Front Association & The Great War Society's Joint National Seminar. He also presented a broader paper that covered African Americans' contributions throughout America's wars and examined the relationship between African Americans' expectations of equal citizenship in exchange for loyal service for the 2013 Civil Rights Conference at UTM. Dr. Wilson has contributed to several Encyclopedias including The Mississippi Encyclopedia, The Encyclopedia of Modern Middle East Wars: A Social, Political, and Military History, and American Civil War: The Definitive Encyclopedia and Document Collection.
