2013 Virginia Universities and Race Histories Conference
Friday, November 8th through Saturday, November 9th in Nau Hall, 1550 Jefferson Park Avenue. Inspired by Virginia General Assembly’s 2007 statement of regret for the institution of slavery, this FREE conference will explore the role of slavery, segregation, and discrimination in shaping Virginia’s institutions of higher education and their relationship with the communities in which they reside. Faculty, staff and students at institutions of higher education as well community members are invited to join us as we gather to remember our collective histories and consider way to remedy its legacy. This is a FREE conference will begin on Friday November 8th with a reception at 5:30pm followed y Craig Wilder’s lecture at 6pm. On Saturday, the day will begin with continental breakfast. Sessions will explore topics such as tradition and identity of higher education, educating about race history, commemorating of history, campus and community relationships, and access to education. Lunch will be provided as well. Click here to see the conference website and click HERE to sign up for the conference. UCARE would like to thank all the sponsors!
