Stumbling Toward Repair: UVA, Charlottesville, And The Process Of Coming To Terms With The Past And Creating Equity In The Present(2020). - "Our presenters will talk about their experiences with two UVA President’s commissions – the President’s Commission on Slavery and the University (PCSU – 2013-17) and the President’s Commission on the University in the Age of Segregation (PCUAS - 2018 to the present). These two commissions now represent a 7 year endeavor by the University to come to terms with its role in America’s racial history and how that has played out in the local space of Charlottesville, Va. They will also speak to the actions that have been taken to begin to recon with these facts in UVA and the surrounding community since 2015/2016."
Transformative Community Conferencing (2017). - "Drawing from both the Transforming Historical Harms manual (Hooker and Potter-Czaijkowski EMU 2012) and the Little Book of Transformative Community Conferencing (Hooker, SkyHorse Publishing/Good Books 2016), Hooker will discuss the role and practices of unveiling hidden narratives that support and sustain conflict, and those that allow conflicting parties to move forward together. After proposing framework, he will apply the framework to recent incidents in Charlottesville, Virginia."
