The Second Black Ice And Sports Hall of Fame Conference



The 2nd Black Ice Hockey and Sports Hall Of Fame Conference scheduled for 24-25 August 2007 in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada is designed to be a forum for the celebration, promotion, and understanding of the Black Athlete and his or her role in North American Society. The Conference offers scholars and students of Black Sports History a chance to come together for the purposes of meeting and networking all the while engaging in intellectual dialogue through comparative discussions and scholarly debate on various topics pertaining to the history of Black Sports.

Topics may include, but are not limited to the Black experience in terms of individual athletes, their achievements and life histories, their struggles for self- identity, their gender, individual self-labour, the role of slavery and its impact on sports and individuals, the role of religion, the educational process, and Black nationalism.

The purpose of the Hall of Fame Conference is to lay the foundation for a permanent Black Hockey and Sports Hall of Fame in Nova Scotia in an effort to usher in a new era of ideas and discussions on the historic evolution of North American Sports and the important role that Black Men and Women have played in reshaping American and Canadian sporting cultures.

The theme of the 2007 Conference is:

"The Soul That Is Within Me No Man Can Degrade." - Frederick Douglas
