In this interactive presentation, our goal is to
virtually tour, relive, and retell the historical transformation of the 7th
Ward in Rochester and to study the effects of racism and discriminatory
policies and practices, which are argued to have caused the uprisings. With this
understanding, we can gain insight into the recent uprisings in Ferguson and
Baltimore in addition to understanding urban uprisings in general to inform
anti-violence and anti-poverty efforts in New York State. Presented by Verdis LaVar Robinson in cooperation with the Greece Historical Society.
No registration is necessary.
