The Commemoration: Preserving Our Past, Framing Our Future | UVA Student Council

The Commemoration: Preserving Our Past, Framing Our Future }

{ Wednesday, March 21 @ 7PM }
{ Old Cabell Hall }

Please join us in our first annual commemoration of the lives of those enslaved laborers who were central to the construction and early everyday functioning of the University of Virginia. We will partake in a candlelit silent march from Old Cabell Hall, to the North Side of the Rotunda, where we will hear from faculty and  student supporters of the movement. The purpose of the commemoration will be to symbolically recognize the lives of the enslaved laborers by gathering supporters at the heart of the University, until an acceptable physical memorial is established.

Guest speakers will include Professor Deborah McDowell, and Sociology graduate student, Tara Tober.
