Liberty Con 2017 – Americans@Risk: Race, Denial, Privilege and Who Matters
March 24 @ 7:00 pm - March 25 @ 6:30 pm| $10 - $40
In our increasing polarized society, the 19th century Underground Railroad movement and its abolition activists challenge us to publicly reflect and act upon the legacy of the institution of slavery in contemporary times. Race relations, gender issues, immigration reform, white privilege, and religion play a role in the risks Americans face today. In our two day convention, we will explore these risks, locate them in their relationship with American history, and dialogue about action responses through a series of workshops, roundtable conversations, and keynote speakers. Is history repeating itself? How can we respond? Join us as we explore our past and look towards the future. This program was funded in part by a Humanities New York Action Grant.
