Un(re)Solved Wisconsin: a dialogue on racial violence

Moderator: Angela Fitzgerald
Panelist: Erika Howard
Panelist: Denise Jackson-Ford
Panelist: Brad Lichtenstein

Location: Shannon Hall, Memorial Union

This session will focus on one chapter of a much larger story, breaking racial violence down to the impact on just one family, one woman’s telling of her father’s experience. Using clips from the PBS FRONTLINE series and podcast, along with storytelling, a panel discussion and audience Q&A, attendees will spend an hour inside the complex and often invisible world of racial violence. Since much of this session is designed to engage the audience and the public, and to build awareness and create change here at home, we want to hear from you. Come with a story, come with a question, come to learn about the very real, very personal impacts of racial violence in our communities.
