Rutgers Law Professors, scholars and students will take part in a panel discussion titled "A Conversation: After Charlottesville" reflecting on recent events.
Among the questions the participants will explore are: How should we decide which stories about the past to publicly memorialize in a free and diverse society? Can we tell history in a way that promotes healing and addresses the traumas and atrocities of the past?
The discussion will take place from 4 to 5 :15 p.m. in Room 70 of the Center for Law and Justice on Wednesday, September 13, 2017.
Panelists include: Elise C. Boddie, Professor of Law (moderator); Nathan Ford, Rutgers Law Student; James Goodman, Distinguished Professor, Department of History; Taja-Nia Henderson, Professor of Law; Adebimpe Oluwadunsin, Rutgers Undergraduate Student in Criminal Justice, President of the Student Government Association; James Pope, Professor of Law; Antoinette Ellis-Williams, Professor of Women's & Gender Studies, New Jersey City University; Assistant Minister, Bethany Baptist Church.
