Buildings and Memorials
The unifying themes of this podcast are memorialization and reconciliation. In this podcast, Georgetown University and American Studies 272 student Kelly Skeen discusses how Georgetown University has memorialized its historic ties to the institution of slavery. The podcast explores the renaming of Mulledy and McSherry Halls after Isaac Hawkins and Anne Marie Becraft. Kelly discusses the significance of the re-dedication to the University, D.C., and descendant communities with Georgetown professor Adam Rothman, MIT professor Craig Steven Wilder, and Georgetown students Connor Maytnier and Juliette Brown. The podcast explores what Georgetown University could do to further memorialize this history on campus and work towards reconciliation.
