    Abstract:
    This essay begins with my attempt to close-read a text by a recently departed colleague, Jeffrey B. Ferguson, but turns into an exploration of writing across registers, in this case the delivery of a very different version of the same paper by Ferguson, one that is far more intimate, insightful, and moving.
    Notes:
    This post was part of a week-long forum, organized by Dr. Mary Hicks, honoring Professor Jeffrey Brown Ferguson who passed away on March 11, 2018. Ferguson was the Karen and Brian Conway ’80 Presidential Teaching Professor of Black Studies at Amherst College. This online forum included reflections from David Blight, Mari Crabtree, Marisa Parham, Werner Sollors, and Uday Mehta.
