"Black Freedom and American Democracy, 1619–2019: A 400 Year Struggle" is a one day conference that brings together some of the nation's leading scholars of African-American history, race, democracy and public policy to critically reconsider the four centuries since the arrival of enslaved Africans, stolen by the Portuguese from Angola and then stolen once more by British privateers, on the shores of Jamestown Colony in British North America.

The Center for the Study of Race and Democracy is proud and honored to be able to bring this community of scholars to the University of Texas at Austin and the LBJ School of Public Affairs to share their research, insight and analysis on this monumentally important and politically resonant subject.
