How does memory shape communities? What fuels the narratives we establish about the people, places, and institutions we choose to commemorate—and how might our stories, monuments, and other “works of memory” reinforce racial inequities? These questions served as the theme for Memory Works: A Symposium on Remembering and Reckoning with Slavery’s Legacies, an event sponsored by the Roberson Project on Slavery, Race, and Reconciliation at Sewanee last month. The Rev. Meghan Mazur, T’22, and Shelley Martin, T’24, presented research projects at the symposium’s poster session, joining undergraduate and graduate students, public historians, preservationists, and community organizers from around the country.
