The Battle to Honor Native and Black Cultural Heritage

Mar 12, 2024

10:00am – 11:00am CT

These speakers are on the front lines of conflicts over America’s legacy of colonialism and slavery. Chief Anne is securing ownership of her Tribe’s ancestral homelands to preserve her Tribe’s identity and way of life. Devon Henry is braving death threats to remove more than two dozen Confederate monuments. Greg Werkheiser, co-founder of the world's foremost cultural heritage law firm, is devising legal strategies for these fights and more. Join us for an up-close and personal look at what it takes to preserve the history and civil rights of all people.
