Each June, the end of slavery in America is observed and celebrated. Join this panel conversation, moderated by Associate Professor Jack Kirkland, to consider the progression in this country from slavery to the Civil Rights Movement/Black Lives Matter. We will consider what “freedom” of African Americans means in its fullest sense, as well as its implications both for Black individuals and American society. This event is part of our Jubilee, celebrating Jack Kirkland’s 50 Years of Service to the Brown School community.
