The National Conference of Black Political Scientists will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2019! In honor our golden anniversary, the 2019 conference (March 13th-17th) we will be returning to where it all began, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  Baton Rouge is rich in black political history as the location of the first annual meeting of NCOBPS, the first civil rights bus boycott in 1953 and the home of the illustrious HBCU, Southern University. To mark this extraordinary occasion the theme of the conference is, Living the Legacy. Derived from the Ghanian tradition of “sankofa,” Living the Legacy will emphasize our strong belief that in order for us to proceed in our forward march, the knowledge of the past must never be forgotten.

The conference chairs are seeking research, panels, posters, and roundtable discussions for the 2019 conference that engage our theme, Living the Legacy. We encourage scholarship and research that examines how far we have come in the black freedom struggle since the founding of NCOBPS; the historical significance of 50th anniversary and what we expect for the future of the organization; the importance of black politics, economics, and culture as we move further into the 21stcentury; and what do we need to learn from our predecessors and ancestors to maintain our community voice in current and future political discourse?

 

Happy 50th Anniversary, NCOBPS!
