Charlottesville Revisited: Unpacking Race in America
Guthrie Theater
Minneapolis, MN
Share this event:

In recent weeks, our nation has witnessed violent clashes between white supremacist groups, the KKK, and Nazis, and those who vehemently oppose what they stand for. One such clash, occurring in Charlottesville, Virginia became deadly when a motorist with ties to white supremacist groups intentionally drove his vehicle through a crowd of counter-protesters. The racial unrest has left many feeling unsettled, concerned, and unsure about the direction in which our country is headed and the steps we must take to undue racism and root out white supremacy in our institutions, government, public symbols, and systems. This event will feature a powerful panel of local and national experts to explore what happened in Charlottesville, how it relates to the history of race relations in the U.S., the connection to past and present racial justice movements, and how we can move forward as a multi-cultural nation.

Expert Panelists:
Dr. Melina Abdullah, Professor and Chair of Pan-African Studies at California State University, Los Angeles, Founding Member, Black Lives Matter Los Angeles
Dr. Keith Mayes, Professor of African American & African Studies
Luz Maria Frias, President and CEO, YWCA Minneapolis
Rev. Dr. Brian C. Herron, Pastor, Zion Baptist Church
Dr. Curtiss DeYoung, CEO, Minnesota Council of Churches & Author
*Moderator: Nekima Levy-Pounds, Civil Rights Attorney & Co-founder, Black Pearl, LLC
