Please join us on Tuesday, December 14, 2021 for the inaugural Julian Francis Abele “Out of the Shadows” Virtual Public History Symposium.

This event, which is being presented virtually on Zoom from 9 a.m. to 2:15 p.m., is named in honor of pioneering African American architect Julian Francis Abele, who contributed greatly to the design of Monmouth University’s Great Hall (previously known as both Shadow Lawn and Wilson Hall).

Our first annual keynote speaker will be Dreck Spurlock Wilson, author of Julian Abele, Architect and the Beaux Arts. A number of other presenters will then speak about their work, with plenty of time allocated for questions and answers.

Please feel free to come and go throughout the day as your schedule allows. The symposium will be a welcoming place for public history practitioners at all levels, established and emerging scholars, and graduate and undergraduate students to share their public history work on individuals or groups in history whose legacies have been purposefully or inadvertently suppressed, overshadowed, or underappreciated.

The symposium is open to the public with no cost for presenters and attendees alike.

Supporting Systems and Communities in Achieving Racial Equality: A Groundwater Analysis – presented by Joyce James

Voices for Change: Voting, Advocacy, and Action

In this presentation, Ms. James will share her journey in developing the Texas Model for addressing Disproportionality and Disparities and the Groundwater Analysis for Addressing Racial Inequities© as the foundation for creating antiracist organizational cultures for undoing institutional and structural racism and improving outcomes for all populations. Participants will gain an increased understanding of the importance of cross systems collaborations and building partnerships with poor communities of color to remove the barriers that contribute to racial inequities. The session will include discussion of the pitfalls of well-meaning and well-intentioned leaders, who in isolation of an analysis of institutional and structural racism, and a racial equity lens, continue to unconsciously contribute to sustaining and often perpetuating racial inequities in the design and delivery of programs and services.

The Strengths of Black Families, presented by Denise McLane-Davison

Voices for Change: Voting, Advocacy, and Action

The political era of the Civil Rights, Women’s Rights, Gay Rights, and The Black Power Movement demanded the inclusion of rigorous research that centered racial and gender identity as significant narratives. The emergence of Black Studies and Women’s Studies, along with student-led and national organizations incorporating the same identity politics also demanded inclusion in intellectual landscapes. During this era Black social scientists blanketed the scholarship, theory, and treatment research that anchored African cultural values, traditions, knowledge, and generational behaviors as disruptive characteristics of pathologized Black family rhetoric. Collectively, cultural scholarship named the impact of adapting Black life to oppression and anti-Blackness policy. They declared the Black family as the fundamental source of strength of the Black community and as the defense for Black life from external threats. This session provides a historical and contemporary alignment on the Black strength perspective through racial pride, resistance, and resilience.
