In-person and Online FREE and Open to the Public (Registration Requested) There can be no question that 2020 marked a high-water point in the level of tension evident between police forces and the communities they serve. What brought our country to this moment? How can citizens best hold their police forces accountable? What does it mean to be a member of the police and also a citizen of the state? Is the current model of policing the best way to safeguard the public? A moderated panel discussion will consider these, and other questions, as we examine this watershed moment in American history. About the 2021-22 Spotlight Series: The University of Minnesota Spotlight Series is a collaborative partnership between the University Honors Program, Institute for Advanced Study, and Northrop, to present lectures, panel discussions, exhibits, and other events throughout the academic year around timely topics of interest. The six-part 2021-22 series, hosted in partnership with the Minnesota Humanities Center, focuses on patriotism, public service, and civic engagement. The moderator for all six events will be Kevin Lindsey, CEO of Minnesota Humanities Center. All events may be attended in Northrop’s Best Buy Theater or online via Zoom. Q&A sessions will follow each event.
