This Month: The Emancipation Marathon with Clottee Hammons
What is the history of the black body? What connections and parallels exist between Chattel Slavery and the present day? What kinds of narratives, stories, and other voices are missing from modern education? How do we acknowledge and honor our ancestors in the context of an atrocity? How do we combat everyday racism? How do we have these kinds of conversations in a civil, dignified, and community-centered way?
Thursday, June 4, 2020. 7 pm. On Zoom. Get Lit
