ARHU DEAN'S COLLOQUIUM SERIES ON RACE, EQUITY AND JUSTICE, FEATURING MARY SIES AND THE LAKELAND DIGITAL ARCHIVE TEAM

Tuesday, April 13, 2021 - 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM

ARHU has launched a campaign to address race, equity and justice in its curriculum, scholarship, programming and community engagement. As part of its goals to increase awareness of issues of systemic racism, equity and inequality, the Dean will be hosting a colloquium and conversation series all year long. The colloquia introduce audiences to the expertise that ARHU faculty have in these key areas and allow for dialogue with the experts and the Dean to engage in ideas for social action and change. 

This colloquium features Mary Sies, associate professor of American Studies; Trevor Munoz, MITH Director; and Lakelands Project team members. The team will discuss the Lakeland Digital Archive documenting the historic African American community of Lakeland, founded in 1890 in College Park, MD. The Archive is owned and managed by the Lakeland Community Heritage Project, an all-volunteer non-profit heritage society. The team will talk about their efforts to model an equitable and just working relationship that acknowledges and seeks to amend past injuries and inequitable power relations between Lakeland, UMD, and others. Team Members: Ms. Violetta Sharps-Jones, historian and genealogist of African American history in Prince George’s County and LCHP Board Member and Dr. Mary Corbin Sies, Associate Professor in the Dept of American Studies and LCHP Board Member

This Dean's Colloquium Series on Race, Equity and Justice is an ARHU Terrapin Strong event.

You must RSVP to attend. A Zoom link will be sent to all registered participants approximately 24-hours prior to the event. 

This talk will be recorded and archived for future viewing on our website.
