The 2013 ACETA conference is focused on civil rights, and will open this Friday afternoon with a keynote address at Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. Samford History Department chair Jonathan Bass—nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for his book, “Blessed Are the Peacemakers”–will present the address.
On March 9 at Samford, more than 20 presentations in concurrent sessions will range over a host of related subjects, from innovative approaches to teaching Civil Rights history to an examination of the film "Django Unchained."
