The Featured Authors Event will take place on Thursday, October 3, 2019, as part of the 104th Annual ASALH Conference, October 2-6, 2018, in Charleston, SC. The event is open to the public and will be held in the C1 and C2 in the Charleston Area Convention Center in North Charleston. Conference Registration is not a prerequisite to participate in the featured Authors Event.

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 2019 National Black History theme: Black Migrations.

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.
