Diversity Summit 2021: After the Protests Have Ended: Imagining an Antiracist Practice of History | University of Denver
This is a sample content policy.
This panel brings together national and internationally renowned historians of the history of race in the United States into a far ranging conversation about the importance of the past in our current policy and practice. Situating their conversation around understanding the “uniqueness” of large scale protests against racial violence and white supremacy in our era of COVID-19, this distinguished panel will address how history can be used for meaningful societal change. By confronting such core themes about the importance of institutions, the centrality of narrative, and the complexity of racial formation for Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian Pacific Islander, and White communities, the conversation will challenge us to imagine what an antiracist and equitable practice of history looks like for us at the University of Denver and beyond.
