The Power of US: What Happens When Historical Narratives Are Corrected
Wednesday, October 14, 2020 at 7:00 p.m.
The history we teach has evolved over time and the reason is simple, we have changed. With those changes come a responsibility to explore what history can teach us about the current state of affairs. When that history is incomplete, or deliberately leaves out elements of conflict, we fail to get an accurate view that causes far more harm than good. As a public historian, Coleman feels her job is to lay out stories you may not have considered or heard before and provide an environment where people can learn and explore.
