The Inaugural Southwest Conference on Black Studies

December 2, 2019 - Africana Studies

The Africana Studies Program at The University of New Mexico has entered its 50th year. In homage to the discipline, our practitioners, and supporters, we will host the Inaugural Southwest Conference on Black Studies (SCBS 2020). The conference, themed, "Assessing the Landscape, Countering the Anti-Black Narrative, and Advancing the Discipline" is scheduled to run from April 29 to May 2, 2020, at The University of New Mexico.

Through the conference, we hope to reinforce the founding pillars of the discipline and reflect on our long-standing commitment to academic excellence and social responsibility.
