On January 16, CelticMKE will host a virtual symposium, presented by Associated Bank’s Cultural Awareness Colleague Resource Group. The symposium will feature four presentations, beginning at 12pm Central discussing the similarities between Irish and African American experiences led by leading experts.

Here is the schedule of presentations:
Ten Abolitionists Who Visited Ireland, presented by Dr. Christine Kinealy

Leaving Home in Search for a Better Life, presented by Gerard Moran and Robert Smith


Equal Rights Heroes, presented by David Greenberg and Tim McMahon


Two Roads Diverged: Irish and African American Common Grounds through Music, Dance and Humor, presented by Leni Sloan and Mick Moloney
