Anti-Racism and Action: Our Roles Now, Second Drop-in Session: Monuments

Friday, July 24, 2020, 1:00 PM

The Dresher Center for the Humanities, Center for Social Science Scholarship, and Center for Innovation, Research, and Creativity in the Arts invite you to attend the second Anti-Racism and Action: Our Roles Now Drop-in Session on Friday July 24th at 1:00 P.M. to consider how we can continue to use our roles as faculty, teachers, chairs/directors, graduate students, or mentors to work toward racial justice, social change, civic action, community action, and pedagogical engagement. This session follows the momentum started in the first Anti-Racism and Action session held on June 12. We will discuss how we can continue anti-racism work on our campus and in our communities as we transition from summer to the fall semester. One focus of this session will be a discussion of memorials, including the removal of monuments in Baltimore and across the country, from the perspective of art history, African American history, and social justice. We will also consider potential ways to carry the work forward by partnering with local schools.
