Monuments Summer 2023

A Season of Conversation

When we look at the mirror of history, will we like what we see? Monuments have become an avatar for the values that we collectively honor and traits to which we aspire, and events that we venerate. What happens when we peel back the layers and acknowledge that the heroes and events we held in esteem are associated with painful histories? How do we center the communities whose voices are not being told? Can we rise above our darkest hours to heal as a global community together?

Dates and Location:

  • Mother Emanuel AME Church – Charleston, SC: Date TBD
  • Cabrillo National Monument – San Diego, CA: July 14th
  • Black History and Cultural Museum of Virginia – Richmond, VA: July 27th
