CAAR 2013 in Atlanta: DREAMS DEFERRED, PROMISES AND STRUGGLES: PERCEPTIONS AND INTERROGATIONS OF EMPIRE, NATION, AND SOCIETY BY PEOPLES OF AFRICAN DESCENT
The 10th International Conference of CAAR, to be held in Atlanta from March 13 to 16, 2013, continues the work on social transformation in the black world of CAAR 2011 in Paris.
One hundred and fifty years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation and fifty years after the March on Washington and the death of W. E. B. Du Bois, the Collegium for African American Research (CAAR) holds its biennial international conference for the first time in the United States. We are meeting in Atlanta, bastion of the civil rights movement, the home of Martin Luther King Jr., and brief residence of W.E.B. Du Bois.
