Marcia Chatelain, Ph.D., Associate professor of History at Georgetown University, will speak on topics of institutional racism and steps the University is taking to address their history of slavery through reconciliation.
Chatelain is a public voice on the history of African American children, race in America, as well as social movements. In 2014, Chatelain organized her fellow scholars in a social media response to the crisis in Ferguson, Missouri, which has led to similar initiatives online and has shaped curricular projects in K-12 settings, as well as academia. A frequent public speaker and consultant to educational institutions, Chatelain delivers lectures and workshops on inclusive teaching, social movements, and food justice.
Chatelain is a member of the Working Group on Slavery, Memory and Reconciliation. Their mission has been to acknowledge and recognize the University’s historical relationship to the institution of slavery. The Working Group has focused on Georgetown's connection to slavery and has searched for information on living descendants of the many slaves owned by Jesuits associated with the Maryland Province.
