Last Thursday, October 27, the Justice Collaboratory at Yale Law School and Public Humanities at Yale honored beloved longtime New Haven resident Winfred Rembert—the late Georgia-born artist, Equal Justice Initiative honoree, and 2022 Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Chasing Me to My Grave: An Artist’s Memoir of the Jim Crow South—with a distinguished panel of intimates, artists, and scholars for an evening of discussion and community at NXTHVN in New Haven’s Dixwell neighborhood. The event featured panelists Patsy Rembert (Rembert’s wife of 46 years, youth advocate), Erin l. Kelly (Rembert’s co-author, Professor of Philosophy, Tufts University), Reginald Dwayne Betts (JC member, Founder & Director of Freedom Reads), Elizabeth Hinton (JC member, Professor of History, Yale University), and Kymberly N. Pinder (Dean, Yale School of Art). Read more at the New Haven Independent.
