“SLAVERY AND ITS LEGACY”

(Intergenerational—Transferring the Legacy)
February 19-22, 2011

JACKSON, MISS. – Tougaloo College, in collaboration with the International Museum of Muslim Cultures, and other local, national, and international partners, will host two national conferences in February that will bring to Jackson scholars, artists, and community leaders to explore West Africa’s literary and musical legacy, issues of slavery and justice, and Muslim cultural identity.

This is one knowledge packed week I have ahead of myself! I didnt even know of the International Museum of Muslim Cultures event, but thank the Man above for little birdies that tell me these things!

Get excited people! What’s more loving than KNOWLEDGE! A little bit of it is dangerous and by acknowledging it, it’s powerful!

BOTH OF THESE EVENTS ARE FREE!!
