Salem Remembers: Connecting Past and Present

Join us to commemorate an important date in
Salem’s history and the history of (in)justice

Wednesday, September 22 | 5 pm

In partnership with PEM, the Salem-based nonprofit Voices Against Injustice remembers the 1692 Salem witch trials and the individuals central to this story.

The extraordinary crisis involved more than 400 people and led to the deaths of 25 innocent men, women, and children. September 22, 1692, marks the date of the last round of executions before the tide of public opinion turned and the trials began to subside. More than 300 years later, the complex drama of the witch trials and its themes of oppression, systemic injustice and individual and collective responsibility seem strikingly relevant today.

Learn more about Voices Against Injustice, the Salem Witch Trials Memorial and PEM’s new exhibition The Salem Witch Trials: Reckoning and Reclaiming.

Read the Press Release for full details about this special event including the panelists who will be participating.

We look forward to seeing you at this virtual event!
