The Lapidus Center inaugural conference, “Reckoning With Slavery: New Directions in the History, Memory, Legacy, and Popular Representations of Enslavement” will take place November 16-18 at the Schomburg Center.

The conference will shed new light on the history of slavery, the slave trade, abolition and opposition to slavery, as well as engage with debates over archives, gender and sexuality, identity, and public history. Continuing on the path of the Center’s programs, which cover the vast African Diaspora, scholars will explore these themes in various countries including Brazil, Canada, Cuba, Iran, the Ottoman Empire, Sierra Leone, Turkey, and the United States.
