On Monday, September 27th at 3:30 pm EST, join Dean Douglas as she speaks with Lonnie G. Bunch III, Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution. Just Conversations during the fall semester will dive deeper into the essays and themes discussed in our fall community read, The 1619 Project from the New York Times. In this conversation, Dean Douglas will explore Dr. Bunch’s former role as director of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture and the importance of telling an accurate and truthful account of American history. In addition, they will discuss criticisms the museum faced and some of the parallels that The 1619 Project has seen since its publishing.
