LMU and Place Series: "Coming to Terms with the Past: The Catholic University and Historical Legacy"

Many universities in the U.S. must contend with institutional legacies bound up with injustice and oppression. Given the Catholic tradition’s emphasis on justice, mercy, and reconciliation, our call to engage with contentious pasts is particularly imperative. Featuring Prof. Marcia Chatelain, a member of Georgetown University’s working group on “Slavery, Memory, and Reconciliation,” as well as experts in the historical legacy of the Catholic Church and indigenous nations in California. Reception to follow.

We encourage you to visit our website to learn more and to RSVP for this event. Thank you.
