Film Description:Monuments can be more than buildings or structures. Caroline Randall Williams—author of the powerful New York Times Opinion piece “You Want a Confederate Monument? My Body Is a Confederate Monument,” which grabbed international attention as a reckoning in the movement to dismantle systemic racism—joins us for this year's Annual Howard C. and Elizabeth Watts Petersen Lecture.

Caroline Randall Williams is a catalyst. She makes change possible by bringing art and joy into the room in such a way that the grit of real challenge and limits may become eclipsed by analysis, innovation, and skill. She is an award-winning poet, young adult novelist, and cookbook author as well as an activist, public intellectual, performance artist, and scholar.
