Panel: Protest & Citizenship (Part II)

Panel: Protest & Citizenship (Part II)
2 hours

Brought to you by

Massachusetts Historical Society

Collective protest, in addition to being a constitutionally protected right, is a fundamental and enduring part of American life and culture. This panel revisited a conversation held at the MHS in 2018 that explored the ways in which protest has been used to highlight injustice and change the citizenship rights of certain groups. In the wake of the high-profile demonstrations triggered by the murder of George Floyd, what can we take from the past to understand our current political and social climate?
