As the conference approaches, we will use our Facebook group to initiate discussion of specific panel topics and larger conference themes. There may be opportunities for presenters to post excerpts from their talks or to link related sites. This conference is about building and expanding networks of fellowship, camaraderie and activism. Beginning the conversation early will enhance our effectiveness and focus come April. We also expect to discuss and organize post-conference initiatives in advance. Please join our Facebook group.
Dr. Marable's publishers (Palgrave Macmillan and Penguin) have agreed to donate close to 50 copies of his books to prisoners through the Books through Bars program in Brooklyn. Authors, would you please bring a soft copy of your book to the conference for donation? Make your pledge today at email@example.com.
