After Charlottesville: Monuments and Public Spaces
Wednesday, November 29
3-4pm
Stayer Center Room 205

Since the protests and counter protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, the nation has been debating the merits of the existence and perpetuation of Confederate monuments in public spaces. While the issue is at the forefront of civic discourse currently, it is not as recent a development as it might appear.

Dr. Jeneise Briggs, Marian University’s Senior Assistant to the President for Diversity and Inclusion, and Dr. Charles Lester, Assistant Professor of History, will provide some broader context and facilitate a discussion on this topic.

The intent is to situate this on-going debate within a larger social and political framework and foster a dialogue that elicits a deeper understanding of the legacy and future of these symbols.
