This semester, we will kick off our ongoing reading group on Music and Race by taking a step away from music, to join our incoming first-year students in reading the 2006 Report of the Brown University Steering Committee on Slavery and Justice. (First-year students had their official study group sessions with this text in November.) You can access the text and an abundance of supporting materials on this terrific website, which was designed by Brown’s Center for Digital Scholarship. In this session, we can also discuss possible readings for the semester.
This Study Group occurs on February 1 from 12-1:15pm. The event is for Brown University students and faculty and not open to the public. Write to Professor Emily Dolan with questions or to be added to correspondence when the Zoom link is circulated.
