Calling for papers and teaching demonstrations for a conference on "Rethinking Race and Slavery at 400 Years." The conference will be held on Friday 8 November at Avon Old Farms School, Avon Connecticut (see weblink for details).
Our aim is ambitious: capitalizing on the 400th anniversary of the beginnings of African slavery at Jamestown, the conference seeks to re-evaluate scholarship and teaching about race and slavery across the entire sweep of U.S. history since 1619. Keynote speakers include award-winning scholars Manisha Sinha and Jeffrey O.G. Ogbar.
