This theme for this year’s Virtual Conference in African American and African Diaspora Cultures and Experiences (CACE) is “The Year of the Black Woman.” The conference centers the voices, experiences, and stories of Black women to consider health and wellness, social justice, education, environmentalism, performance and representation, media and memory, girlhood and family, gender and sexuality, voting rights and activism, and the systemic racism that pervades these areas of expression, identity and rights.

The conference will take place Feb. 24-25 via Zoom. The deadline for abstract submissions is Dec. 14. Please send a 150 word abstract and a 50 word bio, including name, presentation title, major/discipline, and university affiliation to aads@uncg.edu as a word document or a DPF file with the subject name “CACE 2021 Abstract.”
