History Café 2: Engaging with “Difficult Histories” Workshop

Next Event: Tue, Jun 25, 2019, 06:30pm08:00pm

Scholars Stephen Berrey and Tatiana Cruz will reflect on ways to grapple with "difficult histories," based on Berrey's expertise on the history of blackface and minstrelry. How do we deal with the tough stuff of history? Using blackface as a lens to engage with challenging histories, Berrey and Cruz will provide historical context, both nationally and locally, and invite the audience to share how they wrestle with examples from their own communities.
