The Global History of Black Girlhood Conference will gather scholars from diverse disciplines to explore new approaches to black girl pasts. This project grows out of the History of Black Girlhood Network, an informal collaboration among scholars researching the experiences of black girls from the sixteenth century to present in Africa, the Americas, and Europe.
