1619: A Community Discussion

Sunday, September 15th — Jazz Brunch and Conversation around the 1619 Project.

Join Memorial Episcopal Church, the Bolton Hill Social Action Task Force for a Brunch and Community Conversation to discuss and reflect on the 1619 project. A panel of experts including Dr. Christopher Bonner from the University of Maryland, Dr. Rob Helfenbein from Loyola University and Jennie Williams, A PhD candidate from Johns Hopkins will lead a discussion on the 1619 project, what it means for the study of history, for future students, and for us locally here in Baltimore.

The event will begin at noon with a jazz trio and brunch, followed by a poetry reading from Lady Brion, one of baltimore’s Local artistic treasures, who will also have copies of her book on hand to sell. Lady Brion will be followed by the panel, and there will of course be time for questions from the community.

There is no charge for the event, but contributions will be taken to support the Pennsylvania Ave Arts and Entertainment District.
