Conversations On The Edge: Resistance In Context

The Civil Rights Movement, Women’s Suffrage, Stonewall. There have been many instances of resistance over the course of our history; indeed, America was born out of acts of resistance. And while resistance has often been a stance of dissenting citizens protesting various forms of injustice over time, in the current era, resistance has become a mode of action for many more Americans.

BostonomiX reporter Zeninjor Enwemeka will moderate a conversation with grassroots organizers, historians and policy makers exploring examples of resistance and their significance.

Panelists include:

John Stauffer, Professor of English and American Literature, American Studies and African American Studies at Harvard University

Sheila Decter, Founding Executive Director of the Jewish Alliance for Law and Social Action (JALSA)

Paul Butler, Law professor at Georgetown University / visiting professor at Harvard University

Ashley Herring, Community organizer, activist, and representative of Black Lives Matter Cambridge
