Norfolk State University (VA) has been selected by the Federal Jamestown 400th Commemoration Commission as one of the major State institutions that will collectively honor the anniversary of our nation’s beginnings in 1607. Our primary contribution will be a national conference on February 22-23, 2007 which will highlight the theme, “America’s 400th Anniversary: Voices from Within the Veil.”
The national conference in Norfolk, VA will seek to foster a multi-disciplinary dialogue among scholars on the issue of African American rights within the context of United States history. At the conference’s core will be discussions about the historical significance and experiences of this minority group in America and how laws and customs have defined them separately from the majority populace.
Please consult the conference website for further information.
Call for papers deadline extended to August 1, 2006.
