Nathan Harrison was born enslaved in Kentucky long before becoming San Diego’s first Black homesteader. Though he died a century ago, his life on Palomar Mountain continues to be explored by San Diego State University Professor of Anthropology Seth Mallios. The work is now featured in “Nathan Harrison: Born Enslaved, Died a San Diego Legend,” which opened in April as a companion exhibit to the San Diego History Center’s “Celebrate San Diego: Black History and Heritage.”
In today's The San Diego Union-Tribune, columnist Lisa Deaderick goes one-on-one with Prof. Mallios with an in-depth look at Harrison's life, racism, and new findings shared last week at a San Diego Archaeological Center lecture. Read more at the link below.
