The Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences' Department of Africana Studies presents Silencing Their Stories: The Politics of Memory and Race in the Public Memorialization of a State Reform School. This Works-in-Progress Seminar features Kaniqua Robinson, visiting assistant professor in the Department of Africana Studies with comments by Laura Lovett, Department of History, and Courtney Weikle-Mills, Department of English. 

This talk explores the silencing of Black experiences in the public memorialization of the Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys (1900-2011), a state reform school in Marianna, Florida. The presentation further examines these memory-making processes as a critique of the juvenile justice system.
