Join Marquette Civic Dialogues for its first event of the school year, a guided conversation exploring how Americans should engage with the nation’s often complicated past. The event will be held on Thursday, Sept. 14, from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the Raynor Library Beaumier Suites B/C. Register for the event here.
U.S. history shapes national conversations on issues facing our country today. However, how we tell our history is far from uncontroversial. From state to state, history textbooks and curricula have made national headlines in recent years as lawmakers struggle to find consensus regarding what should and should not be taught in schools.
Snacks and light refreshments will be provided.
