🎖 What should Madison commemorate that it hasn't already?

When: Wed, December 5, 6:30pm – 8:30pm
Where: Goodman Community Center, 149 Waubesa St, Madison

Hosted by The Capital Times

"Historic preservation has been a high-profile issue in Madison for more than a year, since Mayor Paul Soglin ordered the removal of an official plaque honoring Confederate soldiers buried in the publicly owned Forest Hill Cemetery. 

In April, the City Council voted to remove a second monument in the cemetery that named those dead and during that debate, Ald. Shiva Bidar said there are many other historical portions of the cemetery that aren’t officially designated: “There is plenty of history of Madison that one could have signs for and put in context.”

That remark raises an interesting, much broader question — what should Madison commemorate that it hasn’t already? — and the Cap Times has pulled together an excellent group to discuss it. City government reporter Abigail Becker will moderate the panel.

The event is free and the panel discussion portion of it will take place 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the Evjue Community Room of the Goodman Center. Afterward, city of Madison staff will conduct small-group listening sessions for those who want to stay to gather input for the city's Historic Preservation Plan."

📖 Sagashus Levingston Talks Back

When: Thu, December 6, 6pm – 8pm
Where: Table Wine, 2045 Atwood Ave #111, Madison

She empowers women others don’t talk about. And as a noted activist, author, PHD candidate and single mother of six, Sagashus has a lot to share. Her conversations reach from the intersectionality of Women of Color to White Fragility to why White women’s conversations can feel like an “assault” on Black women in the room.

Come listen and learn as Sagashus reads from her book, "Infamous Mothers," and then joins Marie Justice and Tanisha L Pyron in a vibrant conversation on a range of topics, including how White women can become better allies."
