The ASALH Annual Conference is an occasion to explore the history and culture of people of African descent. Our conference brings together more than one thousand people, including educators, students, community builders, business professionals, and others who share an abiding interest in learning about the contribution of African Americans to this nation and the world.

For over a century, our conference has featured a rich program, which now includes scholarly sessions, professional workshops, plenaries, a Film Festival and other presentations that analyze and illuminate a critical theme in the Black experience. Our 2019 conference will offer attendees from across America and beyond more than 200 sessions, featuring ASALH members who are prominent figures in Black cultural studies, as well as students from many disciplines.

Sessions will be on the theme and many aspects of black life, history, and culture.
