UCPL to host panel on modern segregation

Join us at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 7 for Modern Segregation in St. Louis, an online and interactive panel discussion featuring experts on urban culture and politics, and racial identity. This event will focus on local neighborhoods that have historically been most impacted by segregation and racial identity erasure, including Wellston, Cherokee Street, and the Delmar divide.

The four panelists for this event are: Washington University Professor of History Iver Bernstein; Georgie W. Lewis Associate Professor of History at Washington University Douglas Flowe; Assistant Professor in the College of Art at the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts and Assistant Vice Provost for Academic Assessment at Washington University Heidi Kolk; and Miller Professor of History and Adjunct Professor of Folklore and Ethnomusicology at Indiana University Eric Sandweiss.

All four panelists have work featured in The Material World of Modern Segregation: St. Louis in the Long Era of Ferguson, a book-length journal that was published earlier this year by Washington University’s The Common Reader.

This online program is free and open to all. Email reference@ucitylibrary.org to receive an email invitation to the Zoom event. The program will also be live-streamed to UCPL’s Facebook page and YouTube channel.
