In 2022 the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center will host a series of two-day conversations on the subject of reparations, funded in part by a grant from Virginia Humanities. On the first day a public lecture will be offered by invited speakers who are leading the reparations conversation across the nation. On the second day the Center will host a breakfast conversation for local groups interested in the subject.
Our second public lecture will take place on 25 March at 6PM with Dr. Davarian L. Baldwin author of In the Shadow of the Ivory Tower and Chicago’s New Negroes: Modernity, the Great Migration, and Black Urban Life.
The talk is free and open to the public. In person seating will be limited to 100. Use the “Book Online” button to reserve your seat.
The talk will also be streamed live on our YouTube and Facebook pages.
A community conversation with Dr. Baldwin is scheduled for March 26 from 9-11am. Groups may indicate interest in attending here, and due to COVID restrictions, seating is limited to 20 people.
