Through a series of facilitated, collaborative discussions, the Wesleyan Center for Social and Racial Equity, in collaboration with the Tubman Museum, will work with community members across a variety of areas to identify areas of reparative justice that most require Macon’s attention. This project extends from the understanding that fuller narratives of Macon’s regional history and Wesleyan’s institutional history are necessary first steps in developing further frameworks for reparative justice. In addition to hosting community-led listening circles, the Wesleyan team will also host public digitization days for Macon community members to contribute oral testimonies and artifacts to a digital archive of regional history, make hidden regional histories visible through public art and monument projects, and develop infrastructure to support anti-racist pedagogy on the Wesleyan campus and in the wider Macon k-12 educational system.
