Mapping Black Towns

March 28 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

Free

Over the past two centuries, more than two hundred black towns have been created to provide security and freedom for people of African descent in the U.S. At this event, scholars will discuss black town formation as well as the triumphs, dreams, and struggles associated with social, economic and environmental dimensions of black life. Join us in this opportunity to hear about digital, textual, photographic, and material evidence for presenting the realities of black towns, past and present.
