Virtual Event: "Marching so Boldly": Remembering Black Lives Through History and Art
October 6, 2021
The Shaw/54th Regiment Memorial is one of the most iconic monuments of the Civil War. Discover the often-overlooked history of African American involvement in its creation and use through time. A distinguished panel will share research and reflections on Black representation, power, and memorialization through this important work of American art.
Panelists include Kymberly Pinder, art historian and dean of Yale School of Art; Kathryn Grover, independent historian and author or the forthcoming manuscript, “To Heal the Wounded Nation’s Life: African Americans and the Robert Gould Shaw/54th Regiment Memorial”; and Steven Locke, artist, and professor, Pratt Institute.
