The ASALH Annual Convention is an occasion to explore the history and culture of Africans and people of African descent.
Our convention brings together more than one thousand people – including academics, community builders, business professionals and others – who share an abiding interest in our annual theme. For nearly a century, our scholarly sessions, professional workshops, and other presentations have served to analyze and illuminate the contributions of people of African descent to the world.
ASALH members and friends from across the nation and the world will come together extensively to explore the annual theme. It’s not just a conference for academics; with more than 200 sessions, featuring our members who are prominent figures in Black cultural studies, as well as scholars and students from many disciplines, we will all learn much from their presentations.
