A timely address by an award-winning University of Massachusetts Lowell historian will keynote Bedford Embraces Diversity’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day community observance, planned for the morning of Jan. 18 on Zoom.
Dr. Elizabeth Herbin-Triant, associate professor of history, plans to explore “the historical roots of white supremacy in the US, focusing on the period after the Civil War, during which policies such as segregation and disfranchisement were put into effect.”
A link to the commemoration will be provided to those who register at firstname.lastname@example.org. The formal program will begin at 9:30 am; the meeting will open at 9.
Herbin-Trian’s talk “will draw connections to what took place in the Capitol last week, paying particular attention to the politics of white grievance.”
