The Black Alumni Leadership Council and the Boston University Alumni Association invite you for an in-depth conversation on transformative events in Black history that have shaped generations from Emancipation to the Tulsa Massacre and the dedication of the Shaw Memorial on Beacon Hill. Experts will provide a better understanding of how we can look back while planning for the future. Bring your questions for a Q&A at the end of the discussion.
