Maurice Wallace has lived and worked in Charlottesville for 5 years. He arrived to the area with his wife, Pam, and their two daughters, Sage and Amaya, from North Carolina where he lived, worked and served in Raleigh-Durham for fifteen years.
Maurice is a university professor who teaches African-American and 19c. American literatures. The encounter between black emancipation and the history of photography in the US South is a particular academic interest of his. He loves the life of the mind and is one of those lucky people who gets paid to pursue what he loves. Bi-vocational for the greater part of his professional life, Maurice also has many years pastoral experience. He served two congregations in North Carolina. Maurice is an avid reader and buys more books than he has time to read. But Amazon loves him. Golf, banana pudding, and marathons of Law and Order are his guilty pleasures.
