Talks & Thoughts: The Long Arm of History - Monuments and Statues Do Matter

Description: 

A new community-centric public forum offering barbershop-style open discourse on current events that have an impact on the African American community. A panel presentation and community discussion about the impact and meaning of the violence in Charlottesville; the rise of white supremacy and white nationalism; and what the removal of our four Confederate statues means for Baltimore. Dr. Karsonya (Kaye) Wise Whitehead will moderate a conversation between our three "talkers" and the community around this topic.

Topic: The Long Arm of History: Monuments and Statues Really Do Matter

Moderated By: Dr. Karsonya (Kaye) Wise Whitehead, Associate Professor of Communication and African and African American Studies in the Department of Communication at Loyola University Maryland
