Minneapolis: Confronting History
Start Date: 6/8/2020Start Time: 7:30 PM
End Date: 6/8/2020End Time: 8:30 PM
Event Description
Drexel’s Department of History invites all students to join in a consideration of the long history of racism in American law enforcement, civic leadership, and public life. With the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police, the nation has just seen yet another moment of racialized institutional violence in a seemingly endless line of such episodes. Why does this pattern endure, decade after decade? Intolerable to many in George Floyd’s community and beyond, his killing has led to tremendous public grief and outcry…Resistance, too, has a history. Please join us for an informal conversation, for history majors and others, as we come together to confront the history of this, our own, moment.
