BU to Host Remove, Rename, or Replace: Monuments to Past ‘Heroes’ in Society

Confederate statues. Yawkey Way. Faneuil Hall. All are memorials to “heroes” from times when many in society were not allowed a voice. We are currently in a period of re-examination of what these monuments mean, the intent of the monument builders, and what these monuments represent today. This seminar will explore these ideas.

Wednesday, February 6, 2019 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.
