Mishio Yamanaka

I am a Ph.D. candidate in history at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My work reveals race and ethnic relations and African American civil rights struggles in the post-Civil War South.

I am currently writing my dissertation titled, “Separation Is Not Equality”: The Racial Desegregation Movement of Creoles of Color in New Orleans, 1865-1900.” This dissertation explores how the community of Creoles of color developed their political power to achieve social equality in public space after the Civil War.
