The Black Diaspora in Narratives of Human Agency and Resistance: Exploring Dialectics of Faith
The 2005 Black History Month Conference, The Black Diaspora in Narratives of Resistance and Human Agency: The Dialectics of Faith will explore literary, musical, and activist forms of resistance that intersect faith with social action. Papers will explore the ways that people of African descent have attempted to forge agency in a world where they are disadvantaged relative to the structures and mechanisms of power. The conference will honor the legacy of Ida B. Wells-Barnett, an early 20th Centry writer, journalist, and activist whose work laid the foundation for the modern Civil Rights movement.
