46th Annual AAAM Conference – Commemorating the 60th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Act
Conference Theme: Acknowledging Legacy, Fostering Progress: Commemorating the 60th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Act
Conference Dates: August 13-16, 2024
Location: Baltimore, Maryland
The Association of African American Museums (AAAM) invites proposals for presentations, sessions, workshops, and discussions for our 46th Annual Conference, which will be held in Baltimore, Maryland, from August 13 to 16, 2024. The theme for this year’s conference is “Acknowledging Legacy, Fostering Progress” as we commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Act.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 is a landmark piece of legislation that has had a profound impact on civil rights and social justice in the United States. Its passage marked a pivotal moment in the ongoing struggle for equality, justice, and equity. This conference seeks to acknowledge the contributions African and African American-focused museums and cultural institutions have made throughout the diaspora in preserving, interpreting, and advancing the legacy of the Civil Rights Act.
As we commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, we invite you to contribute to this important conversation and help us acknowledge the legacy while fostering progress in our communities and institutions. We look forward to your innovative and engaging proposals. In considering proposals, please feel free to discuss the legacy of the Civil Rights Act in all facets as it pertains to African American history and culture (e.g. Black history in the arts, indigenous communities, descendant communities, Queer history, etc.)
Proposals must be submitted by a Current AAAM Member.
