General session details: The South Dakota Humanities Council, in cooperation with longtime SDHC scholar Lawrence Diggs, hosts a weekly discussion series, "Brainstorming: the Human Connection," to foster people peace and unity during these trying and divisive times. Diggs will use his humanities expertise to introduce and connect people with one another to help avoid tragic misunderstandings like the one that occurred in Minneapolis on May 25, 2020, when George Floyd, an African-American man, died after police knelt on his back and neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds in Minneapolis, Minn.
