    - Carolina Public Humanities connects UNC-Chapel Hill with our neighbors outside the University and promotes public engagement. Our programs draw on humanistic traditions to encourage conversations about contemporary events and past historical eras. The overall goal is to help create a more humane world by fostering civil dialogues and new insights that emerge from the humanities.

    Keeping this spirit in mind, Carolina Public Humanities and Chapel Hill Public Library are partnering to present, “Beyond the Headlines: Confederate Monuments, Historical Memory, & Free Speech.” This special event will feature a panel discussion with UNC faculty and community members. Following the panel presentations, the audience will be invited to ask questions and discuss these issues.
