    50 Years Since Selma: Spirituals Transforming Society Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

    The Spirituals Project, in collaboration with the University of Denver, will host the second biennial REAP National Conference on the Spirituals, to be held June 25 – 27, 2015 on the University of Denver campus. 

    We are currently soliciting proposals for conference presentations and workshops that use the historical moment of the voting rights campaign in 1960s Selma, AL, to focus on the varied dimensions of the spirituals as represented through Research, Education, Activism, and Performance, and their use as a tool for social justice. Visit the official REAP Conference website for more information and to submit your proposal.
