Understanding past, preparing for the future is theme of conference


    LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The University of Louisville’s March 7-10 Dr. Joseph McMillan National Conference on the Black Family in America will examine how past struggles for racial equality impact today’s African Americans.

    Most activities and sessions for the event, “Family Reunion: Bridging the Past with the Present,” will be at the Seelbach Hilton Hotel, 500 Fourth St., except for a March 9 Youth Summit at the Red Barn, Belknap Campus.

    The conference, now in its 40th year, is named in honor of its founder, a UofL professor and administrator who died in 2010.
