Subject: CHR news and opportunities

Dear Colleagues, Students, and Friends,

On Friday, we will host the second of our two important conversations: "On Racial Injustice and Restorative Action: A Conversation with Leslie Abrams Gardner and Jimmie Gardner” (see flyer below).  Justice Leslie Abrams Gardner (sister of Stacy Abrams) and Jimmie Gardner (an exoneree, incarcerated 27 years for a crime he did not commit) will engage in a discussion about mass incarceration and criminal justice reform.

If you missed the first event, On Racial Injustice and Restorative Action: A Conversation with Spencer Crew (Robinson Professor and Interim Director, National Museum of African American History and Culture) and Derrick Johnson (Executive Director, NAACP)” you will find a recording on the CHR website: https://chr.gmu.edu

Interested in a faculty writing group this summer?
We've been approached by faculty members interested in a humanities-focused writing group for faculty. Ideally, the group would meet twice per month and would provide an opportunity to share work in progress and to engage in intellectual discussion around each member's project(s). Please email me if you would be interested in participating: [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>
