Bulletproofing American History: Race, Remembrance and Emmett Till

A lecture by Mabel Wilson

Compelling architectural and urban designs like the recent Memorial to Peace and Justice by Mass Design have been erected to aid the public in remembering the historic and geographic scope of America’s legacy of racial violence. As architects, planners, urbanists, and historian how do we commemorate America’s fraught history when recent protests by the white nationalist group Unite the Right at historic sites like the University of Virginia or the need to bulletproof a historical marker at an important site of the Civil Rights struggle tells us that violence still simmers and erupts in the nation’s public spaces?

Spring 2020 broadcasts are open to the Columbia GSAPP community. This discussion is free and open to the public, view the meeting here.
