I wanted to make you aware of an upcoming conference hosted by the UNC African-American History Working Group to be held on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on Feb 27-28. The conference theme is "Reconsidering the African-American Community," and our keynote speaker will be Dr. Trevor Burnard (University of Warwick and National Humanities Center 2008-2009), and will deliver a lecture entitled "Time, Space, Community in the African Period of Slavery in British America, 1607-1807."
The conference is free and open to the public, and there is no need to register in order to attend. Please see the attached flyer and the UNC History Department website (http://history.unc.edu) for more details and feel free to distribute this announcement widely.
