Our annual meeting is an occasion to share the cultural and historical contributions by people of African descent. Attendees from across the nation and around the world will convene to explore the 2018 National Black History theme: African Americans in Times of War.

With over 200 panels featuring prominent figures in Black cultural studies, as well as scholars and students from all disciplines, the ASALH Conference presents an optimal opportunity for you to present your research and current projects, as well as, learn about some of the other leading projects in the field of African American History.
