October 11 - October 12

Announcing a conference on “Mass Incarceration and Slavery” at Tougaloo College, October 11-12, 2019.

The conference is co-sponsored by the Institute for the Study of Modern-Day Slavery at Tougaloo College and by Historians Against Slavery, with generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

This gathering of academics, activists, survivors, public officials, and others has two goals. The first is to understand the history and current state of mass incarceration and its connections to slavery. The second is to use that knowledge to encourage reform and social justice. The conference is free and the community is warmly invited to attend.


Please register by September 20, 2019.
