Dr. Craig Stutman specializes in the history of Race and Ethnicity in the United States, the Civil War and Reconstruction eras, Pennsylvania history, and the History of Poverty, Welfare and Social Justice.  In addition, Dr. Stutman has been actively engaged in the dual arenas of Public History and Community Development, working on place-making and historic signage projects in the Germantown section of Philadelphia, and formerly serving as the lead research historian and writer on a National Park Service Context Study surveying the history and built-environment of African-Americans in Pennsylvania--a project which was jointly administered by both the African-American Museum in Philadelphia and the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission.  Dr. Stutman currently serves on the Advisory Board of the Albert M. Greenfield African-American Iconic Images Collection, a collaborative venture between the Mural Arts Project of Philadelphia and the African American Museum, as well as on the Toni Morrison Society’s Bench By The Road Committee-- a historical memorialization project that has been marking significant events in the history of the African-American Diaspora with symbolic benches and plaques placed at both national and international locations.
