Listed below are the names of various scholars of the African American experience from throughout the nation who are available to lecture to groups, organizations, and institutions. While their expertise is most in demand in January and February because of the Dr. Martin Luther King Holiday and Black History Month, they are available throughout the year for presentations. If you are interested in obtaining any of them please link on to their names below to view their profiles and make contact.
All negotiations about honoraria and arrangements are to be made directly with individual speakers, not BlackPast.org. We are a clearing house which provides access to the information sent in by the speakers. If you are interested in having your name listed as a speaker, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The BlackPast.org staff will evaluate your credentials to determine if your experience and expertise are appropriate for this list.
