The event was called “No Welcome Home: Remembering Harms and Restoring Justice,” and was hosted by the Northeastern School of Law’s Civil Rights and Restorative Justice Project and the school’s Humanities Center. A dinner reception for the event drew author and activist Angela Davis and educator Robert Moses . The two scholars were also recognized in the crowd. “So guess who is in the audience of this Toni Morrison lecture? Angela Davis,” starstruck Northeastern assistant professor Sarah J. Jackson tweeted during the event. “Just chilling in the audience.”
