Why We Remember: Contextualizing Monuments

November 6 @ 2:00 pm 4:00 pm

What is the purpose of memorials and monuments? What impact do they have on us and the way we think about history? During this discussion, we will talk about the monuments that were created in response to the uprising and the ones that came down. We will delve into the people and structures we have traditionally considered monumental throughout history. Join the George Floyd Global Memorial, Memorialize the Movement, and independent artist seangarrison for a discussion on how communities shape public memory.
Come early and enjoy a performance by the youth choir, KNOWN Mpls!
