King, Howard University, will talk about the worldwide problem of trafficking in illicit antiquities and its relationship to other crimes: narcotics, human trafficking, money laundering, and terrorism. She will discuss issues involving the Euphronios krater, the looting of a United States military cemetery in which primarily black soldiers are interred, and the selling of artifacts used to fund terrorist activities including the Khmer Rouge and Daesh (ISIS).
