Johns Hopkins students, faculty, staff, alumni, and neighbors are invited to join a virtual town hall discussion on Friday, Dec. 11, from 11 a.m. to noon to begin a dialogue in response to the recent revelations about previously unknown, direct connections between the university's founder and namesake, Johns Hopkins, and slaveholding. Participants will have a chance to ask questions of our historians and to offer advice and ideas for the path forward.
