Doria Dee Johnson was a much admired and beloved graduate student in our Department of History and an inspiring model of scholarly engagement in making history publicly present. Doria passed far too soon in 2018. This lecture will honor her memory with ongoing conversations on research in the histories of injustice and inequality.
