The convention will run from 4pm-10pm on Fri, Oct 24th and 9am-5pm on Sat, Oct 25th. A Nerds Night Out event at Yellowhammer Brewery will wrap up the convention.

National author and speaker Sheryll Cashin discusses her new book, Place Not Race: A New Vision of Opportunity in America.   Ms. Cashin argues that affirmative action as currently practiced does little to help disadvantaged people, and she offers a new framework for true inclusion.

Huntsville native Sheryll Cashin is Professor of Law at Georgetown University, where she teaches Administrative Law, Constitutional Law, and Race and American Law among other subjects.  She writes and speaks nationally about race relations, government and inequality in America.  Professor Cashin worked in the Clinton White House as an advisor on urban and economic policy, particularly concerning community development in inner-city neighborhoods.  She is an active member of the Poverty and Race Research Action Council (PRRAC) and Building ONE America, an emerging national network of state and regional coalitions promoting sustainable growth and social inclusion.  She is a two-time nominee for the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award for non-fiction.
