Since 2004, an annual symposium has been held in Atlanta, Georgia or virtually during the week of Walter Rodney’s birthday (23 March).
The goal is to bring together scholars, researchers, activists, students, and the community to discuss contemporary issues from a Rodney perspective.
In addition to what is listed below, many of the symposia posters, programs, and videos can be found in the Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library’s Digital Collection.
