Beyond the Underground Railroad: Visually Relocating American History and Culture from a Black Perspective

Wednesday, May 10th

1:30-3:30 p.m.

Sedona Public Library Village

Bell Rock Plaza, Suite 51A, Sedona, AZ 86351

Why is the Underground Railroad (UGRR) and legacy of slavery still important? Are there connections between the UGRR, Arizona and the West? How can we creatively address the overlapping layers, and competing narratives of American history, which provide insight not only into our past, but also into the contemporary issues that this country faces. How can we locate the historic sites; and outside of the museums and libraries, where the relevant documents, illustrations, and other artifacts be found?   Join Stephen Marc, ASU Professor of Art and Network to Freedom Interpretative Program of the National Park Service

Partners:  Sedona Public Library and ASU School or Art       

This program is made possible by the National Endowment for the Humanities and are part of the Humanities and the Legacy of Race and Ethnicity in the United States Initiative.
