The Centering Race Consortium holds first virtual event in series on "Monuments, Murals & Movements"
The Centering Race Consortium's focus on monuments, murals, and movements allows us to discuss the questions of power and commemoration. The title of writer Natasha Tretheway’s new memoir, Memorial Drive, is a perfect example of the way that places at once are actual, and imagined. The aptly named road exists in Atlanta, where her mother was murdered, and the name also indexes the human need or 'drive' to remember.

It was great to bring experts together from different campuses, and to hear them respond to one another's expertise and insights. The panelists shared not only what they know about monuments and public memorials from the academic scholarship, but also what they had learned about those topics from activists who are deeply involved in today's public debates," Pitti said.
