Description

IU professors Irit Dekel (Germanic Studies and Jewish Studies) and Rasul Mowatt (American Studies and Geography) will speak with Susan Neiman about the parallels and differences between the way the Nazi past is publicly recognized in Germany and how the United States has sought to address our history of slavery, racism, and the struggle for civil rights. What are the impacts of the protests for Black lives on how we publicly recognize an evil past while promoting values of racial justice?
