The Center for New England Culture is pleased to present its 3rd Annuel Black New England Conference entitled, "Black New England Stories:Literature, Art, and Oratory," at the University of New Hampshire in Durham, June 13-14, 2008.
This event will feature an array of nationally-known authors, artists, scholars and community members who will focus broadly on forms of Black expression and Black creativity in New England. Through the stories of well-known as well as little-know authors and artists, presenters will explore how literature, art, and/or oratory was and is used by Blacks to discuss the issues of the day.
The Conference will present a keynote address by eminent poet, critique, and children's book author, Patricia Smith; presentations by award winning poets Charles Coe and Askia Toure; presentations by actor and historian Dorothy Mains-Prince and playwright Kirsten Greenidge; and many more.
