Philadelphia’s most monumental project of 2017 concludes with a keynote conversation between Michael Eric Dyson (professor and author of Tears We Cannot Stop), New York Times architecture critic Michael Kimmelman, and Salamishah Tillet (scholar, activist, social critic, and faculty member at the University of Pennsylvania).

They’ll discuss the overarching themes and questions raised by Monument Lab, as well as the future of memory in public space.
