Stone Ghosts and The Quiet Power of Preservation
The monuments that we honor, the stories that we tell, and the spaces we return to, are ways that we look to the past to better understand ourselves, because the memories that are held in their walls and in their soil and in their spirits are reflections of not just who we were, but who we are. These monuments and places have the power to oppress or uplift, valorize or villainize, bind or set free. They tell a story. But whose story? Let’s talk about the role of edifice, architecture and ephemera in freedom and politics.

Trymaine will be joined by Brent Leggs, Executive Director, African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund at the National Historic Trust.

*RSVP by 10:00am ET on 9/30. You must register through this form and a limited number of seats will be allocated for in-person participation. We will notify you at noon the day of the study group via your Harvard email whether you will be joining in-person or via Zoom.
