“Rights and Wrongs” is a 3-part series that explores a range of perspectives, including the history of race in America and the Black Lives Matter movement, women’s suffrage and the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, immigrant rights, public health vs. individual liberty, voter rights and voter access, freedom of speech and the arts, or other topics and approaches that connect to this theme.
Panelists for Part 1 include Xaviera Simmons, a visiting lecturer and the inaugural Solomon Fellow at Harvard University. Her interdisciplinary art practice is rooted in shifting definitions of landscape, character development; art, political and social histories and the interconnectedness of formal processes. Joining her is Dr. Martha S. Jones, a legal and cultural historian whose work examines how black Americans have shaped the story of American democracy. She is the Society of Black Alumni Presidential Professor and Professor of History at The Johns Hopkins University. The event is co-hosted by Sheri Parks, Ph.D., Vice President for Strategic Initiatives, and Chloe Green, General Fine Arts (Major) | MICA, '21.
