A light lunch will be served.
What is the history behind the Confederate monuments that have recently come down in Baltimore and Durham? How and why did they come down? And what should be done with the empty pedestals and the spaces around them in order to offer a different kind of historical memory?
Join us for a conversation with historians Martha Jones and Blair Kelley and journalist David Graham about history, memory, and politics in Baltimore, Durham, and beyond. Discussion moderated by Robin Kirk.
Sponsored by the Forum for Scholars and Publics.
