Event description

Description

Do you know someone who was killed due to racial violence between the years 1930-1970?


If so, we are inviting you to participate in the Civil Rights and Restorative Justice (CRRJ) Project's symposium, “Resurrecting Their Stories: A Community-Based Oral History Project." The program begins Friday, June 9 with a plenary session and reception. On Saturday, June 10, between 9 am and 5 pm, CRRJ will be recording oral testimonies and collecting materials on racial violence and lynching, while also offering concurrent plenary sessions, and an archive tour. The event will serve as an inclusive gathering place for all groups to discuss their experiences, share their photographs and other materials, and provide oral testimony. The symposium is free and open to the public and is co-sponsored with The Elmore Bolling Foundation, the Tuskegee Institute Memorial, the Tuskegee University Archives, and the Alabama NAACP.

For more information please contact Dr. Rhonda Jones, CRRJ • 617-373-3495 r.jones@northeastern.edu or Victoria Rothbaum, The Elmore Bolling Foundation • 781-820-0082 • rothbaumv@gmail.com
