About this Event
The Making African America symposium brings together scholars, journalists, activists, curators, filmmakers, and writers to discuss how immigration has shaped and is continuing to reshape what it means to be black in the United States. Join us as we explore topics such as the expanding geographies of civil rights, defining African American and transnational identities, and notions of home and belonging, as well as the forces underlying the tensions, shared histories, and alliances between different black ethnicities in the United States.

The symposium will take place at the University of Maryland, College Park-Stamp Student Union on Thursday, April 16 and Friday, April 17. On Saturday, April 18 there will be a related Community Day from 11 am - 3 pm and last day of the Symposium on from 12:30 pm - 6:00 pm. On that same day there will be Writer's Panel and Book signing from 7 pm - 10 pm.
