Alaina E. Roberts Biography

Alaina E. Roberts is an award-winning associate professor of history at the University of Pittsburgh, where she studies and writes about the intersection of Black and Native American life from the Civil War to the modern day.

Dr. Roberts is the author of "I've Been Here All the While: Black Freedom on Native Land", which examines the history of the only people of African descent in the world to receive reparations for slavery—the symbolic "40 acres" of land. In the book, you'll also meet the Native Americans who enslaved these Black and mixed-race people as well as the white settlers who competed with them for land and governmental control in what is now Oklahoma.

"I've Been Here All the While" received the Stubbendieck Great Plains Distinguished Book Prize and the Western History Association’s John C. Ewers Award and W. Turrentine Jackson Book Prize. It was also a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in history.

Dr. Roberts has written for TIME magazine, High Country News, and the Washington Post, and her research has been featured in CNN, the Boston Globe, The New Yorker, The Atlantic, and other outlets.
