Charles Chavis, an assistant professor of conflict resolution and history, and director of African and African American studies at Mason, talks to Mason President Gregory Washington about his new book that explores the lynching of a young Black Man in Salisbury, Md., and how understanding his story and the Black experience in the United States can help find ways to fight anti-Black violence. Chavis also pushes for a National Truth and Reconciliation Program to give the country the chance to reset and “deal with the truth.”
