Hard Histories Conversations: Marco Robinson and W. Caleb McDaniel

SNF Agora Institute

Join Hard Histories at Hopkins for a virtual discussion with Drs. Marco Robinson and W. Caleb McDaniel. The work of uncovering the histories of racism and discrimination at universities in the United States goes beyond Johns Hopkins. Rather, this effort is part of a broader national reckoning to reconsider complexly the links of many institutions in the United States, including ones pertaining to higher education, to histories of discrimination. In this panel discussion, Robinson and McDaniel will discuss the vital work that they each do in uncovering the connections of their Houston, Texas-area universities—Prairie View A&M and Rice, respectively—and the land that they sit on, to the histories of enslavement and discrimination. Robinson and McDaniel will be in conversation with Dr. Martha S. Jones, Hard Histories’ project director. Their conversation will be followed by an audience Q&A.

Hard Histories is delighted to co-sponsor this event with the Houston Museum of African American Culture. John Guess, Jr., the CEO Emeritus of the museum, will make introductory remarks.
