Africana Studies at Rutgers University-Camden is collaborating with The Black German Heritage and Research Association (BGHRA) in hosting a four day conference “ALL BLACK LIVES MATTER: Black Germany and Beyond”on February 17-20, 2022. The conference will be the culmination of our year long event series, “ALL BLACK LIVES MATTER,” and in celebration of Black History Month 2022.

We welcome submissions for potential twenty-minute presentations on one of three academic panels, or for presentations from graduate and undergraduate students delivered in poster format, or for participation on one of two sessions devoted to activism, life writing, oral history, and memoir. Proposals for film screenings are also welcome.

Please send a 250-350 word abstract and a CV or short biographical statement by November 15, 2021 to info(at)bghra.org
