"...The explicit reckoning of the Black Lives Matter movement shows that pervasive racism persists and contributes to wrenching inequalities in the United States, especially among our Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities.

While we welcome proposals from anyone with interesting work to share, the planning committee will prioritize submissions from BIPOC people and people working at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and other BIPOC-centered libraries, archives, and museums, in alignment with our commitment to do more to ensure marginalized voices have better and more central representation. To do so, we have self-identification options in the proposal submission form...."
