Black Heritage Trail of New Hampshire: 15th Annual Black New England Conference
October 22, 2021 - October 23, 2021
Traditional African spirituality acknowledges that there is no real separation between the spiritual and the rich fabric of everyday life. In this traditional worldview, spirituality informs everything including politics, economics, survival, healing, death, and rebirth.
The 2021 Black New England Conference explores paths forward from legacies of racism to collective accountability and collective healing. Presenters will examine the ongoing impacts of enslavement, murder, mass incarceration, unethical medical experimentation, disenfranchisement, and the many more harms perpetrated against people of African descent and the ways traditional spiritual and religious practices serve as sources of strength, hope, resistance, and healing for Black people in the centuries-long struggle for justice.
