Wednesday October 14, 7:00-8:30pm
Hosted by the Connecticut Historical Society

Join us for a discussion on the role monuments play in our community. We will examine three monuments from three different centuries to learn more about how America responded to each monument when it was conceived and how we respond to them today. The monuments we will examine are the Washington Monument (dedicated 1885), the Vietnam Veterans Memorial (dedicated 1982) and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice (opened 2018).

The panelists include:

endawnis Spears (Diné/ Ojibwe/ Chickasaw/ Choctaw)

Manisha Sinha, Ph.D.

Dana Miranda, Ph.D.
