About the Conference

This conference aims at bringing together scholars from the United States and different European countries to discuss the legacy of the Black Civil Rights Movement from a transnational and interdisciplinary perspective. We will take a closer look at the origins and uses of the concepts of human dignity and human rights within the movement and then explore how its legacy has inspired activism and organizations for racial and social justice on both sides of the Atlantic.
