The Humanities Council was a proud sponsor of the Wintersession 2021 faculty roundtable discussion and launch of the virtual gallery “To Be Known and Heard: Systemic Racism and Princeton University” which took place on January 8.
The gallery is a visual narrative experience that confronts the legacy of racism within the University’s history and present, shares historical and contemporary examples of anti-racist work at the University, details significant student activism efforts over the years, and incorporates community members’ constructive visions for a more equal and just University and world.
The roundtable discussion participants were Professor Brian Eugenio Herrera (Lewis Center for the Arts & GSS), Professor Tera Hunter (African American Studies & History), Professor Beth Lew-Williams (History), Professor Dan-el Padilla Peralta (Classics), co-facilitated by Tennille Haynes (Carl A. Fields Center) and Judy Jarvis (Office of Wintersession & Campus Engagement). Audience members were able to ask questions and engage with the interactive parts of the site.
