Revitalize, Rejuvenate & Reinvigorate: Embracing Multicultural Education
to Create a More Just, Inclusive & Equitable Tomorrow

As we prepare to convene our first face-to-face conference since the pandemic in the historic center of the Civil Rights Movement––Montgomery, AL–– we simultaneously bring hope and commitment to revitalize, rejuvenate, and reinvigorate multicultural education.

Don't miss this opportunity to learn and share strategies to eradicate disparities and inequities and illuminate the urgent need to unite to solve the world’s most pressing and confounding issues, including institutionalized racism, climate change, increasing hate-based violence, food insecurity and widening socio-economic gaps.

Join NAME's many allies, leaders, educators, researchers and advocates who champion the work creating a more just, inclusive, and equitable tomorrow!

AnchorNAME's Weds. Nov. 15th  AFTERNOON Special Event 


NAME members had a special experience together in Montgomery's famous
Legacy Museum
National Memorial to Peace & Justice

The Legacy Museum provides a comprehensive history of the United States with a focus on the legacy of slavery. From the Transatlantic Slave Trade and its impact on the North and coastal communities across America through the Domestic Slave Trade and Reconstruction, the museum provides detailed interactive content and compelling narratives. Lynching, codified racial segregation, and the emergence of over-incarceration in the 20th century are examined in depth and brought to life through film, images, and first-person narratives. 

Situated on a site where enslaved Black people were forced to labor in bondage, the Legacy Museum offers an immersive experience with cutting-edge technology, world-class art, and critically important scholarship about American history.  

As a physical site and an outreach program, the Legacy Museum is an engine for education about the legacy of racial inequality and for the truth and reconciliation that leads to real solutions to contemporary problems.

At NAME's Conference On Friday Morning: 

Across the nation, schools, teachers, librarians and students feel the pressure as political agendas push for censorship and banning books. Now more than ever, it is important that we come together and fight against book banning and censorship. Bring your favorite banned book and join us in a celebration of the right to read and at a protest against book banning at our Book In.  You can also donate your book to banning states and districts.

During this peaceful protest
we shared our favorite banned books
and made a stand for the freedom to READ!
