Alabama State University's National Center's Forum on Slavery & Freedom Discussions (405 hits)

National Center’s Forum Places Slavery & Freedom at the Center of Discussions

WHEN: Thursday (Feb. 28), 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
WHERE: ASU's National Center, 1345 Carter Hill Road

The National Center for the Study of Civil Rights and African-American Culture at Alabama State University invites the public to engage in a thoughtful discussion about American slaves and the freedom ideal.

The event, titled “Standing Against the Negative Forces All Around Us,” is Thursday (Feb. 28), from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the ASU National Center, 1345 Carter Hill Road.

The forum's overall goal is to evaluate the objective and subjective forces defining blacks’ visions, hopes and persistence in their quest for freedom during the Antebellum era – those years from the formation of the Union until the beginning of the Civil War.

The roundtable will feature presentations from locally and nationally known scholars, who are: .

Morning sessions (“Hope, History and the Struggle for African-American Freedom”): Dr. Dorothy Autrey, program chair of the National Center; Dr. W. Marvin Dulaney, retired professor from University of Texas at Arlington; Dr. Abel Bartley, professor at Clemson University; Dr. Bertis English, professor at ASU; and Dr. Howard Robinson, University archivist at ASU.

Afternoon sessions (“Slavery in the City of Montgomery and the State of Alabama”): Jennifer Taylor, Equal Justice Initiative; Kelly Hallberg, Landmarks Foundation; Dr. Dallas Hanbury, Montgomery County Archives; and Dr. Steve Murray, director of the Alabama Department of Archives and History.

All sessions are free and open to the public.
