Free conference to explore 'racial justice and public history'

"Reclaiming Our Ancestors: Community Conversations About Racial Justice and Public History," a series of workshops and panel discussions, will take place Thursday through Saturday at various locations throughout Buffalo.

Topics range from building museums and creating memorials; to Muslims in America, past and present; to filmmaking and social justice; to "Sisters in Stitching: Weaving Justice," which features a quilt sewn as a tribute to 32 people of color killed by state-sanctioned violence.

All sessions and the opening reception are free and open to the public, but registration is required because space is limited. For a listing of locations, presenters, session descriptions and conference registration, go to: http://www.humanitiesinstitute.buffalo.edu/event/hi-conference-reclaiming-our-ancestors/

This national conference is sponsored by the University at Buffalo Humanities Institute and the Michigan Street African American Heritage Corridor.
