Larry Greene

Larry A. Greene, Ph.D.


Department of History


Dr. Greene's research focuses on the relationship of African Americans to Germany and expatriate communities.

I specialize in the study of the Civil War, African American History, Great Depression and World War II, and the History of the South. I have taught courses in these areas over the course of the years.

My present research interests involve the future publication of books on Harlem and the relationship between African Americans and Germany. The later is the result of my research on the African American expatriate community and travelers in Europe.

Like many professors, I love to hear myself talk. Thus my penchant for lecturing. However, even more than hearing myself expound on history and the world, I love to hear my students talk and joy in their intellectual engagement of history.
