Dinner Dialogue: Choosing to Forget: Race & Commemoration of African Americans’ Civil War Service
January 24 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Dinner Dialogue: Choosing to Forget: Race & Commemoration of African Americans’ Civil War Service is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Macado’s. From the moment the Civil War’s guns fell silent until recently, the contributions of African Americans to Union victory and slavery’s destruction have been neglected. This dinner dialogue will provide participants an opportunity to understand why that history has been ignored, how it reached its crescendo during the Civil Rights Era of the 1950s-1960s, what that neglect has meant for race relations in the United States since the conflict’s end and provide a forum to discuss ways that locally we might help bring that history more to the forefront. Dinner is free for the first 10 students. Please complete the Martin Luther King, Jr. Week of Service Sign Up Form to participate.
