Racism and Repair at and beyond Johns Hopkins University

October 19, 2023 @ 10:00 am 3:00 pm

Symposium on New Research into the History of JHU

Over the past three years, research teams funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and composed of leading experts have been excavating how academic departments in the medical sciences, social sciences, and humanities at Johns Hopkins University both created racist forms of knowledge and expertise and were reshaped by anti-racist and desegregation struggles in the twentieth century.

Join us for a symposium that will mark the first public presentation of the findings of these research teams. This presentation will contextualize segregated knowledge production in the history of Baltimore City and propose forms of reparation, while also inviting community feedback.

Among the academic departments to be discussed are: Archaeology, Emergency Medicine, Hematology, History, Sociology, and Surgery.

Co-sponsored by Inheritance Baltimore: Humanities and Arts Education for Black Liberation and the JHU Program in Racism, Immigration, and Citizenship.

Location: Eubie Blake National Jazz and Cultural Center, 847 Howard St.
Free and open to the public. Lunch will be served.

This event will also be livestreamed (here) for those who cannot attend in person.
