A Virtual Symposium on Immigration and the Changing Dynamics of Blackness.
Throughout March 2021, The Making African America symposium brought together fifty-three scholars, journalists, activists, curators, filmmakers and writers to discuss how immigration has shaped and is continuing to reshape what it means to be black in the United States.
The symposium was presented in partnership with the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture and the Center for Global Migration Studies at the University of Maryland, College Park.
