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.
