For nearly 30 years, the scholarship and efforts of Dr. Monroe Fordham produced the most comprehensive regional archive of African-American related material in the nation. He collected and made available to scholars the papers of businesses, churches, individuals, social organization, community organizations, and the like. After his retirement in 2002, the History Department of SUNY Buffalo State established the Monroe Fordham Regional History Center to preserve and expand his efforts to document the life and time of local ethnic cultures in Western New York. For the past 13 years, the center has continued that work and expanded on it to include the documentation of the contributions of additional groups in this ethnically rich community.
The Monroe Fordham Center for Regional History at SUNY College at Buffalo is sponsoring a conference to celebrate the contributions of our diverse ethnic communities to the history of Western New York. It is designed to bring together people who have helped to create this history, who have studied it, or are vitally interested in it and its preservation. The event is designed to afford all participants the opportunity for networking and dialog.
