Baton Rouge (LA) has been selected as the site for the 11th Annual National Civil Rights Conference in summer of 2022. Baton Rouge was chosen to host the conference because Baton Rouge and the Southern University Law Center and System are the ideal place to have an explosive conference engaging civil rights leaders and learners along with HBCU leaders, alums, and students. More specifically, the Louis A. Berry Institute for Civil Rights & Justice made a commitment to (1) sponsor the conference, (2) share its history of activism tied Freedom Summer, and (3) illuminate the numerous civil rights landmarks and sites around the Southern University campus. The theme for the 2022 conference is Engage, Educate & Empower.
The conference will be held June 20-21. The deadline for submission of paper, panel, poster and artistic production proposals has been extended to May 1, 2022. Proposals should be submitted electronically and must include title of paper or panel, author (s) name and affiliation(s), 200 to 250-word abstract of the paper or panel, and contact information. Proposals may be submitted to the conference chair at firstname.lastname@example.org

As Chancellor of the Southern University Law Center (SULC), I welcome you to Southern University A&M College! SULC is thrilled to welcome the National Civil Rights Conference to our beautiful campus and Baton Rouge, LA. Here, you will discover our rich civil rights history and learn about Southern students' activism as part of a more significant protest movement on HBCU campuses.
At Southern, we are humbled and inspired by the compassionate and selfless legacy of those who sacrificed so much during the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. Together, we can follow their lead to continue to advance social justice and voting rights and create a more inclusive society for all Americans.
As we say at SULC – Love, Preparation & Honor.
