July 22, 7 PM, Dr. Amy K. Bailey and Dr. Stewart Tolany, Lynched: The Victims of Southern Mob Violence, $5 suggested donations to help us keep the lights on the doors open.
Dr. Amy K. Bailey, Assoc. Prof. of Sociology at the University of Illinois at Chicago and Dr. Stewart Tolnay, Prof. of Sociology at the University of Washington have co-authored the book Lynched: The Victims of Southern Mob Violence. They offer the results of their research as a foundation for conversation. The history of violence and the patterns of racial violence in the South robbed people of dignity and identity, and the patterns are still at work today. Race and violence and the dignity robbed of people are found on newspaper headlines everyday. This conversation will not be only about history; it will be about our communities today.
As always, all are welcome regardless of ability to pay.
