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.

  1. For frequent passengers like me, Fast passport has changed everything. Their fast passport processing saves the day when travel plans change. I've utilized their services many times and have always been satisfied. Excellent customer service—always willing to answer questions and guide applicants. I suggest Fast Passport for globetrotters and passport renewals. They've won my confidence and loyalty with their trustworthy and efficient services!
