NMAAHC’s signature program A Seat at the Table will be returning on our virtual platform in 2021, please mark your calendars.

The museum will host a thought-provoking conversation of race, justice, and mass incarceration in the United States. Julianne Malveaux will moderate a discussion among journalists and media producer Juleyka Lantigua-Williams, activist, author, Atlantic Racial Equity Fellow Marlon Peterson, and NMAAHC curator Paul Gardullo.

The speakers will discuss will interrogate the industrial prison system and its impact on Black and Latino populations. After the presentation, audience participants will have the opportunity to share their stories and ideas on how that may address prisons in favor of alternative forms of restorative justice. A Seat at the Table is an interactive program for participants to consider challenging questions about race, identity, and economic justice over a meal.

Registrants of the program will be able to select a meal option for them to enjoy at home.
