Conference Panels at #NCBS2020
The National Council of Black Studies (NCBS) will host its 44th annual conference in Atlanta, Georgia March 11-14, 2020 at the Atlanta Marriot Buckhead Hotel and Conference Center. The National Council for Black Studies was established in 1975 when African American scholars came together to formalize the study of the African World experience, as well as expand and strengthen academic units and community programs devoted to this endeavor.
NCBS was formed out of the substantial need for a national stabilizing force in the developing discipline of Africana/Black Studies. Today, the purpose of the NCBS is multidimensional and the scope of its functioning is quite broad. As an organization created and sustained primarily by students and their teachers, NCBS is committed to academic excellence and social responsibility. As part of the conference and building upon our successful pre-conference at the National Communication Association, the Center of African American Public Address and Rhetoric will sponsor four panels at the NCBS conference. Two Panels are on Friday, March 13, 2020, and two panels are on Saturday, March 14, 2020. If you are attending the conference, we hope to see you in one of our sponsored panels.
