There can be no question that 2020 marked a high-water point in the level of tension evident between police forces and the communities they serve. What brought our country to this moment? How can citizens best hold their police forces accountable? What does it mean to be a member of the police and also a citizen of the state? Is the current model of policing the best way to safeguard the public? A moderated panel discussion will consider these, and other questions, as we examine this watershed moment in American history.
ABOUT THE SPOTLIGHT SERIES: The University of Minnesota Spotlight Series is a collaborative partnership between the University Honors Program, Institute for Advanced Study, and Northrop to present lectures, panel discussions, exhibits, and other events throughout the academic year around timely topics of interest. The six-part 2021-22 series will focus on patriotism, public service, and civic engagement. The moderator for all six events will be Kevin Lindsey, CEO of Minnesota Humanities Center.
