At the Crossroads of Freedom and Equality:
The Emancipation Proclamation and the March on Washington
The ASALH Annual Meeting 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–academics,
community builders, educators, business professionals and others–who share an abiding interest in
our annual theme. For nearly a century, our scholarly sessions, professional workshops, and public
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 come together extensively to explore
the 2013 Black History Theme: At the Crossroads of Freedom and Equality: The Emancipation Proclamation
and the March on Washington.
For more information on this year's black history theme, click here.
With more than 175 panels featuring our members who are prominent figures in Black cultural studies,
as well as scholars and students from all disciplines, the ASALH Conference presents an optimal
opportunity for leading academicians to present research and current projects, and to learn about leading
projects in the field of African American History.
