Truth and Reconciliation: Using Cultural Spaces to Change the Narrative"
This talk will explore America's history of severe punishment and racial inequality and articulate a vision for using public art, cultural spaces and memorials to address injustice and oppression. A national memorial for victims of lynching, a new museum on slavery and mass incarceration, along with a national effort at erecting historic markers that change the American landscape will be discussed.
Mr. Stevenson will be signing copies of his book in the Alliance Bookstore immediately following his talk.
