2019 is the 400th Anniversary of the arrival of the first Africans to be sold into bondage in North America in 1619 at Jamestown. Families, organizations, neighborhoods and cities are observing the anniversary by telling their stories of oppression, resistance and triumph in the battle for equality.
The Fairbanks School of Public Health invites you to join us in our observance of 400 Years of Inequality by attending one of our dynamic sessions. The day will include a lecture by Dr. Joseph Lennis Tucker Edmonds, Assistant Professor of Africana Studies and Religious Studies; a workshop session; a stage reading of One Blood; and a viewing of the film Power to Heal.
All sessions are free and open to the public. Learn more about the national observance on 400 Years of Inequality.
This event is sponsored by the Marion County Public Health Department, IUPUI School of Health and Human Sciences and the IU Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health at IUPUI.
