The Bonner Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) hosts weekly Brown Bag discussions, open to members of the campus and the community, from 12:30–1:25p.m. on most Fridays during the academic year. Each week, a speaker or small panel leads a presentation on a provocative social issue, then opens up the floor for discussion. Free pizza will be provided.
This week's CCE Brown Bag speakers will talk about the work that they do with East End Cemetery, a historic African American cemetery in Henrico County, Virginia. They will also discuss the history of the cemetery, how it relates to the history of Richmond, and community partner's aspirations for the cemetery in the future to uncover more history that has been buried.
This event is a part of MLK Week 2019.
