ABWH Announcements (July 2015)
35th ABWH Luncheon: Save the Date and Buy Your Tickets!
The Association of Black Women Historians (ABWH) in conjunction with the Centennial Meeting of the Association for the Study of African American Life History and Culture (ASALH) Conference will host its annual luncheon on Saturday, September 26, 2015, at 12:00 noon in the Grand Ballroom Salon A on Level 3 at the Sheraton Hotel Downtown in Atlanta.
This year our three speakers--Kali Gross, Brenda Stevenson, and Rhonda Williams--will participate in a cross-generational dialogue that highlights what it means to be black woman scholar-activists in the increasingly neo-liberal university system and how black women historians are uniquely equipped to speak to what is happening to black women and girls in the United States Justice System.
In the words of James Baldwin, “The Price of the Ticket” is $49.00. Buy tickets from the ABWH Cart. Note that you are able to purchase multiple tickets for guests and students. If you would like to pay with a check, please send your check to ABWH, Attn: Luncheon Tickets, P. O. Box 35767, Los Angeles, California 90035-0767.
