Alex Finley, a Ph.D. candidate in history who is studying the domestic slave trade and the finance and business practices of slave traders in the antebellum period at William & Mary, combined two of those three passions to uncover a little known, controversial community in West Virginia. It’s a discovery that has drawn the attention of television producers from the PBS program Finding Your Roots and ushered in a fascinating chapter in her life. Tune in tonight at 8 p.m. EST on PBS to see Finley's appearance on the show and you'll be stunned by what Finley discovers about her past.

In honor of the @tribeathletics men's and women's basketball season openers tonight, check out this #wmregram (and belated #ThrowbackThursday) c/o @berrysports --- I'll "tip off" this five day black and white challenge with a photo from William & Mary men's basketball. Dale Moats tips off for the Tribe vs GMU during the 1979-1980 season. I was challenged by David Luttrell, and since he was posting older film photos, I thought I'd do the same...mostly because I've been meaning to dig up these old negatives for years now. I started shooting for William & Mary's yearbook, The Colonial Echo, my sophomore year. One of the other yearbook photographers, Doug Kirkpatrick, lived on my hall at JBT that year, taught me to develop black and white film, and started me with the yearbook. I shot quite a bit my junior and senior years, mostly sports, but clubs, groups, and anything else they needed. @dluttphoto @tribeathletics @wmalumni @william_and_mary

Home is where brick walkways lead to history and the Wren Bell tolls. Where Lord Botetourt welcomes you to campus. Where the Sunken Garden invites you for a nap and where turtles swim the Crim Dell.
