An International Conference Rethinking the Black Power and Black Arts Movements


The Du Bois Department of Afro-American Studies thanks all the scholars and activists, writers and artists, youth and elders, who came together November 18-20, 2010, to mark our 40th year on the University of Massachusetts Amherst campus, as well as to support the exchange of knowledge about the dynamic period in which academic Black Studies units like ours were established. The conference drew over 400 participants. Please click the poster to go to the conference website.
