  • MTSU 2016 – Hallowed Grounds: Sites of African American Memories


A century ago, an interracial group of Americans joined together and formed the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). The story of the NAACP is the story of a universal struggle to create and maintain equal citizenship for all Americans. It is a transnational narrative that binds human and civil rights struggles in the United States with the aspirations for equality and justice in Latin America and the Caribbean. The centennial of the NAACP is an occasion to highlight issues of race and citizenship in the Americas, from the experiences of African-Americans and African descended people in the Americas.
