2-day Conference Theme: Express Your Self: Identity, Style and Adornment
Oct 19-20, 2018

In exploring the traditions, artistry, and social histories that have shaped different forms of African American style, this conference will offer participants an opportunity to explore the historical and present impact of various forms of artistic expression on the development of African American identities and cultural production, as well as how the embodiment of aesthetic expressions serves as a point of reflection for social issues today.

The Black New England Conference, now in its 12th year, is an annual 2-day gathering where academics, artists, activists, and community members share insights and research on Black experiences, past and present, in New England and beyond. The Conference is both an academic conference and a celebration of Black life and history.

Event is open to all - see event link for registration information

Event sponsored by Black Heritage Trail of New Hampshire, Center for New England Culture, Community, Equity and Diversity Office, Center for Humanities and others
