    Looking for solutions to the dilemma about how to confront and constructively address ‘difficult’ places of memory and, in some cases, their absence, this panel presentation will offer real and virtual alternative approaches that use different media to promote a public dialogue about how and what we remember. The speakers represent projects and institutions that encompass local and national efforts, providing possible models as well as obstacles to public education and participation in New York City.

    Kubi Ackerman, Director of the Future City Lab at the Museum of the City of New York

    Marisa Williamson, Multimedia artist and creator of “Sweet Chariot: The Long Journey to Freedom Through Time”

    Ken Lum, Artist and co-curator of “Monument Lab: A Public Art and History Project”

    Moderator: Jill Strauss, Assistant Professor, Borough of Manhattan Community College

    The final panel in the ‘Difficult Histories’ series co-presented with the American Social History Project and the Public History Collective at The Graduate Center, with funding provided by Humanities New York
