Historicizing the Douglass Monument

February 15, 7-8:30pm

Historicizing the Douglass Monument: Public Art and the Collective Historical Imagination will consider the role of statues and other forms of public art to mark and remember the Civil War in relation to monuments dedicated to African American Civil Rights History and to Frederick Douglass himself. Join us for a timely and engaging discussion examining our complex relationship with history, race, and public art.
