Oct. 29, 2011, 4 p.m. – 6 p.m.NEIU Carruthers Center for Inner City Studies
Torture survivors–Darrell Cannon, Mark Clements, David Bates and Anthony Holmes–will speak about their experiences and share their insights on the creation of a monument to memorialize the Chicago police torture cases and the ongoing struggle for justice.
The Chicago Torture Justice Memorials Project invites artists and justice seekers to submit proposals for a speculative monument to memorialize the Chicago police torture cases. Our goal is to honor the survivors of torture, their family members and the African American communities affected by the torture. The monument will also recall and honor the nearly two-decades long struggle for justice waged by torture survivors and their families, attorneys, community organizers, and people from every neighborhood and walk of life in Chicago. Sponsored by the Chicago Torture Justice Memorials Project and the NEIU Sociology Department, African American Studies Program and the Women’s Studies Program
