Zoom Webinar


To ensure the health and safety of everyone at Weitzman events, visitors to Penn’s campus are required to register in advance and complete PennOpen Campus on the day of the event. Members of the Penn community do not need to register in advance, but will be required to present a valid PennCard as well as PennOpen Pass for entry to in-person events. Please plan to arrive early. Face coverings are required indoors in public and shared spaces on the Penn campus.

We welcome you to join us for our virtual symposium, November 18 and 19, 2021.

By convening a number of scholars and practitioners deeply engaged in different aspects of preservation work, this symposium will address the varied needs for advancing the urgency of preserving sites, stories and organizations representing the heritage of civil rights in the U.S.
