The Black New England Conference is a 2-day conference that gathers scholars, teachers, researchers, community members and members of local organizations to share their work and insights on the Black experience past and present in New England. It is both an academic conference and a celebration of Black life and history in New England.

This year's 8th Annual Black New England Conference investigates the significant roles Black women have played and continue to play in shaping the history, culture, and image of New England. With a lens on the nation and a focus on the New England region, presenters will discuss ways in which Black women have historically navigated New England's particular geography and structures of race, class and gender through their journeys of "self invention."By resisting narratives that sought to marginalize them, Black women have historically created alternative paths for themselves, their families and their communities on their journey to self-creation.

Huddleston Hall Ballroom, Main Street, Durham
8 a.m - 6:00 p.m.
