1619 Collective Memory(ies) Symposium

11

Nov

*PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THIS EVENT IS AT CAPACITY. WE WILL HAVE OVERFLOW SEATING WITH LIVE STREAMING AVAILABLE*

Join the Stone Center on Monday, Nov. 11 as we host the 1619 Collective Memory(ies) Symposium. This one-day symposium will bring together “conversants” from communities thrown together as a result of the Transatlantic Slave Trade. Representatives from Native/Indigenous American, African American, African, European and White American (descendant) communities will offer their unique insights and reflections on the 400th year since the eventful moment in 1619 when those enslaved Africans arrived at Point Comfort near the English settlement at Jamestown, in what is now Virginia.

The event will feature 2 keynotes (morning and afternoon) that will serve as the foundation for the conversations that will take place between invited guests:
