Our presenters will offer world views, challenge social constructs or perceived truths, question ownership of truth and invite you to share your thoughts in an intriguing dialogue.

Dr. Anne C. Bailey will be the keynote speaker for this year's annual community conference. She is a writer, historian, and a tenured professor of History and Africana Studies at SUNY Binghamton (State University of New York).
Dr. Bailey is committed to a concept of “living history” in which events of the past are connected to current and contemporary issues. She is also concerned with the reconciliation of communities after conflicts like slavery, war and genocide. In her work, she combines the elements of travel, adventure, history, and an understanding of contemporary issues with an accessible style.(Click here to see Dr. Bailey's full biography.)
