Tim McMillan is a senior lecturer at the University of North Carolina- Chapel Hill's Department of African, African American and Diaspora Studies. He is also the creator of The Black and Blue Tour. In 2001 Tim was teaching a seminar called “Defining Blackness” when he realized how much of UNC’s own racial history went overlooked. He started the Black and Blue tour of the UNC campus to help people gain a more nuanced perspective. He knows these conversations can make people uncomfortable.
