Last spring, I was approached by Daisy Zamora to let faculty know about a Conference that will be going on here in Chicago this September, called Facing Race 2010 (here’s a link to their web site), which seemed like a long ways away back then–yet, here we are!
I’ll let Daisy explain:
I’m excited to tell you that here at the Applied Research Center (ARC) where I work, we’re gearing up for our biennial conference, Facing Race and I’d love for you to attend. The conference will be held in Chicago from September 23-25, 2010 at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place. Our Early Bird Registration rate has kicked in at $250 per person. We also have student and group rates available. Our current student rate is $150 and group rates are at $250 for groups of three or more people.
We also have special rates for folks who attended the USSF in Detroit.
We’re expecting this conference to be our largest ever, with an audience topping 1000. Facing Race has become a vibrant hub for leading racial justice activists, thinkers, writers and artists to meet, learn together, and share innovative strategies and celebrate successes. The conference will feature a variety of provocative plenary discussions, dozens of interactive workshops, our Race Flix film series and several networking and cultural activities.
I hope you’ll consider being part of the dynamism of Facing Race 2010, so I’ll follow up with you to see how we can count on you to attend.
