Black AtlanticBlack Atlantic Atlantic Lecture Series

With its name taken from the ground-breaking Rutgers Center for Historical Analysis (RCHA) seminar in the late 1990s sponsored by Deborah Gray White and Mia Bay, this annual lecture series in the Rutgers University Department of History brings speakers to campus to present new scholarship on race, African American and African Diaspora history. The Black Atlantic is intended as a collaborative forum to encourage research, publishing and scholarly community. In addition to offering lectures and symposia, it also sponsors a writing group for graduate students to foster research, publication and support.
