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 third public lecture will take place on 19 April at 6PM with Dr. Marcus Anthony Hunter, the Scott Waugh Endowed Chair in the Division of the Social Sciences, Professor of Sociology, who also served as the Inaugural chair of the department of African American Studies at UCLA.
The talk will be streamed live on our YouTube and Facebook pages.
A virtual community conversation with Dr. Hunter is scheduled for April 20, at 6pm. Groups may indicate interest in attending here.
