Sharing history at association's 107th annual meeting

Fred, who is living history, will chop it up with funk scholar Scot Brown during a session this Friday at the Association for the Study of African American Life and History's 107th annual meeting in Montgomery, Alabama. 

The conference is the association's first in-person gathering since before the pandemic. It will feature a rich program of scholarly sessions, professional workshops, historical tours, a film festival and book signings. Fred will sign copies of his Duke University Press memoir "Hit me, Fred: Recollections of a Side Man" after his session, entitled "Remembering the Roots of Funk."

The conference will also feature Bryan Stevenson of the Equal Justice Initiative and a tour of the National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery.
