Description

Join us for a virtual roundtable discussion as we explore the power of liberatory memory work and truth-telling platforms on the five year anniversary of Chicago's reparations ordinance for survivors of Jon Burge police torture. The roundtable will discuss the continuing struggle for a public memorial to survivors as part of the reparations package, consider the relationship between justice and truth-telling, and share experiences from the Institute on Memory and Human Rights travel seminar to Alabama, in which all of the discussants participated. 

Invited speakers include Mark Clements, Greg Banks, LaTanya Sublett, and Monica Cosby in conversation with Jordie Davies and Nory Peters. A photo montage will be presented by Noelle Petrowski. 

Co-sponsored by the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture.

Mark Clements, Learning Fellow, Chicago Torture Justice Center
