While I can’t go to this, you should.

Talks & Thoughts: The Long Arm of History – Monuments and Statues Do Matter

A new community-centric public forum offering barbershop-style open discourse on current events that have an impact on the African American community. A panel presentation and community discussion about the impact and meaning of the violence in Charlottesville; the rise of white supremacy and white nationalism; and what the removal of our four Confederate statues means for Baltimore. Dr. Karsonya (Kaye) Wise Whitehead will moderate a conversation between our three “talkers” and the community around this topic.

Topic: The Long Arm of History: Monuments and Statues Really Do Matter

Moderated By: Dr. Karsonya (Kaye) Wise Whitehead, Associate Professor of Communication and African and African American Studies in the Department of Communication at Loyola University Maryland

Date: Saturday, August 19, 2017 at 2pm

Whose Heritage? Public Symbols of the Confederacy

“The argument that the Confederate flag and other displays represent “heritage, not hate” ignores the near-universal heritage of African Americans whose ancestors were enslaved by the millions in the South. It trivializes their pain, their history and their concerns about racism — whether it’s the racism of the past or that of today.”

LGBT, Refugees, Jews

WE REMEMBER: GLOBAL LGBTQ COMMUNITIES IN CRISIS

Tisha B’Av is considered the saddest day on the Jewish calendar. It is a time to reflect on the destruction of the ancient Temples in Jerusalem, as well as other communal tragedies of the Jewish people. In symbolic tribute to the ritual observance of Tisha B’Av, GLOE will mark this day by examining the current climate of persecution targeting LGBTQ communities around the world, including the recent wave of detention and torture of gay men in the Chechnya region of Russia, and the impact of the global LGBTQ refugee crisis created by factors such as systematic executions of LGBTQ people by the Islamic State and anti-gay legislation passed in places like Uganda.
