Partner Program: 1919 and Its Legacies: Race, Nation, and Conflict

Join University of Richmond for a unique symposium on the historical importance and long-term impact of racial injustice on the city of Richmond and Virginia.

From “Red Summer” and the Red Scare in the United States to anticolonial revolts and nationalist uprisings around the world, the year 1919 was a critical moment in the history of racial violence, radicalism, state suppression, and nationhood. This conference will explore the larger historical significance of these anniversaries, as well as the long-term legacies for the City of Richmond and for racial justice on a local, national, and global stage. The conference will culminate in a keynote speech delivered by Dr. Ibram X. Kendi, Professor of History and International Relations and Director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center at American University.
