Lessons from Yale: Writing new histories onto a university campus

SERIES: Dangerous Memories: Conversations around the past, social justice and constructing university memory
This series features speakers addressing the challenges of dealing with difficult or hidden histories on American university campuses. Our speakers address how their campuses and museums have confronted legacies of slavery, racism and inequality in a thoughtful way that promotes social justice. This series is held in conjunction with a Bass Connections Brain and Society project that is looking at how memory is constructed at Duke and laying out ways the campus could build a more inclusive story about its past.
Sponsored by the Duke Human Rights Center @ the Franklin Humanities Institute. Cosponsored by Bass Connections: Brain and Society, the Duke University Archives, the Duke Language, Arts and Media Program (LAMP) and the Pauli Murray Project
