Professor Marcia Chatelain, a historian at Georgetown and graduate of St. Ignatius College Prep, will discuss Georgetown’s Working Group on Slavery, Memory, and Reconciliation. In her talk, Chatelain will relate Georgetown’s deliberation on using their slaveholding past to animate its future, and she will discuss why Catholic institutions must lead the way in confronting racism and its pervasive impact in the world.
