The ASALH Annual Convention 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, including academics, community builders, business professionals, and others, who share an abiding interest in our annual theme. For over a century, our scholarly sessions, professional workshops, and other presentations have served to analyze and illuminate the contributions of people of African descent to the world.

It’s not just a conference for academics. With more than 200 sessions, featuring members who are prominent figures in Black cultural studies, as well as scholars and students from many disciplines, we will all learn much from the presentations.

Our historically rich conference program now includes a Film Festival and other presentations that analyze and illuminate a critical theme in the Black experience. Sessions will be on the theme and many aspects of black life, history, and culture.


The 2019 theme, “Black Migrations,”
