2020 was a year marked by widespread mass protest around the world following the murder of George Floyd on May 25th. Floyd’s death symbolized centuries of anti-Black racism and reignited resistance against the many legacies of racial slavery. Around the world statues and memorials dedicated to key players and memories of this history were toppled, spray painted, burned, beheaded, and thrown into rivers. Join us on February 23, 2021, at 3:30 pm for a conversation with scholars, artists, and students as they share the important work they are doing in Rhode Island to address the state’s history.
