USM English Department Faculty Lecture Series - 10/30/13

Sponsored by the Department of English, Professor Eve Raimon will speak about New England's African-American memorials and the paradox that even as African American public recovery projects rightfully seek to extol black achievements, these memorials often elide other more discomfiting parts of our shared American past.
