The Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives and Rare Book Library, and the Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry invite students, members of the Emory community and the general public to “Reconstruction Activism” on Dec. 10th from 10:00am-11:00 am EST. Panelists include Dr. Francine Allen (Morehouse) and Dr. Marla Frederick (Emory), as well as Emory Arts and Social Justice Fellow Garrett Turner and Former Rose Library Artist-in-Residence Charmaine Minniefield. It will be moderated by Jina DuVernay (Emory University).
“Reconstruction Activism” is the final of three panels that will explore the history and significance of Reconstruction. Panelists will discuss the various forms that activism took during Reconstruction. Importantly, it will also create a space for discussions of how activists/activism for racial equality and justice in the current moment has been shaped by the past. The program will last an hour, with the last 15 minutes reserved for questions. The event is free and open to the public. Attendees can register for the online event.
