The fourth annual conference of the African American Intellectual History Society will take place at the Rackham Graduate School and the Michigan League. This year’s theme, Black Internationalism—Then and Now, provides the occasion for a timely and much-needed conversation about the global dimensions of Black intellectual thought. The array of nearly 50 panels, roundtables, workshops, museum visits, film screenings, and plenary sessions provide an opportunity to explore the theme of Black Internationalism from many different angles. The conference will also feature a luncheon discussion with National Book Award Winner Ibram Kendi. Participants are also encouraged to visit the book exhibit hall where 14 university presses will showcase their latests publications. The keynote address by distinguished scholar Ula Taylor, “Frances M. Beal's Paris Years, 1960-1966,” will explore the ways that Beal’s life in Paris highlights the importance of an internationalist consciousness.
