In advance of Liza Jessie Peterson's The Peculiar Patriot, join ArtsEmerson, The Museum of African American History, and the Suffolk County Sheriff's Department for a public dialogue with Liza Jessie Peterson, Suffolk County Sheriff Steve Tompkins, moderated by Lizzy Cooper Davis. Together, they will examine Liza's idea of "Peculiar Patriotism" practice: resisting status quo and advocating for what is right by supporting and loving those the criminal justice system has deemed "guilty."
