CSPAN Coverage of UVA's Slavery Symposium

Wednesday, December 27, 2017

Last October, the Nau Center took part in a number of panels and sessions as part of the University of Virginia’s “Universities, Slavery, Public Memory, and the Built Landscape” symposium. More than five-hundred people attended this important event, with a number of our students, faculty, and staff presenting or moderating panels. We would like to thank the Presidential Commission on Slavery at the University and Dean Kirt von Daacke again for including us.

Thanks to CSPAN, the symposium’s first plenary session is now available to view online for free. It features the Nau Center’s Associate Director Elizabeth Varon, affiliated faculty member Ervin Jordan, and former Center summer intern and current fourth-year UVA student Wes Gobar.
