Live Webinar: AASLH Conversations: Black Lives Matter and (the American) Revolution

August 21, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm UTC-5

The wave of anti-racist protests sweeping across the U.S. since the killing of George Floyd on May 25th has propelled issues of discrimination, police violence, and social justice into the national spotlight with an urgency that echoes the civil rights movement of the 1960s. Against this backdrop, preparations for marking the 250th anniversary of the American Revolution continue. How will this renewed social justice movement impact the way history organizations commemorate this anniversary? How will it impact the ways in which Americans respond? What are the opportunities for dynamic, transformative engagement with audiences who seem eager to understand the past in more nuanced, inclusive ways? Join us next Friday for a conversation about the impact of recent events on our field’s approach to the U.S. 250th Anniversary.  Register here.
