Afro-Atlantic Histories

The Wilmerding Symposium will gather literary and visual artists to reflect on how art responds to and shapes both official and overlooked narratives wrought by the transatlantic slave trade and its legacies.

Made possible by a grant from the Alice L. Walton Foundation

April 26–28, 2022
