Mapping the Colored Conventions Movement features a variety of interactive maps and timelines that allow us to explore the rich and vast history of the convention movement.

By creating these maps, using tools such as Neatline, we seek to share specialized research in this history with a broader public audience. We will be posting maps that illustrate the convention locations, the presence of women at the conventions, and much more.
