400 Years of Inequality

400 Years of Inequality


Shaun Leonardo

The first Africans arrived in Jamestown, VA in 1619. In the 400 years since, the United States has codified inequality in our laws, our policies, and our practices. Join board-certified psychiatrist Dr. Mindy Fullilove, who is dedicated to the psychology of place, as she calls on the country to acknowledge and reckon with this history during the week of October 12-18, 2019. Dr. Fullilove, will be joined in conversation by artist Shaun Leonardo, who is known for his work exploring masculinity, criminal justice, and race, and ArtPlace America executive director Jamie Bennett, who supports artists as allies in making their communities more equitable. The three will interrogate our history and share how communities across the country are rising to the challenge.
