On February 16th at 7 pm, join us via Zoom for a talk by Dr. Clint Smith. Dr. Smith is an author, poet, and staff writer at The Atlantic.

In this talk, Dr. Smith discusses how the history of slavery has shaped the contemporary landscape of inequality, and shares what he learned from trips to different historical sites throughout the country. Informed by scholarship and brought alive by the stories of people living today, Smith outlines how these places reckon with—or fail to reckon with their relationship to slavery, and how it is our responsibility to collectively document, learn from, and account for this history.
