Grief, Mourning, Race, and National Memorial
A Conversation with the editors of
TILL DEATH DO US PART
Suzanne Smith, moderator
A deadly global pandemic, nationwide protests of police brutality against black citizens, and calls for peaceful memorialization all lend themselves to discussing what death, shaped by race and ethnicity, can teach us about grief, mourning, burial, and national identity. There is right now an overwhelming need to hear, to heal, and yet there is so much to process. Suzanne Smith will join Allan Amanik and Kami Fletcher, editors of the new book Till Death Do Us Part: American Ethnic Cemeteries as Borders Uncrossed, in a wide-ranging discussion and conversation.
