The University of Maryland at College Park's Afro-American Studies

conference focuses on the Information Revolution and People of Color.
One of the many goals of this national conference is to maintain

Several publications will be prepared for delivery at the conference.
Among them will be a directory of the most important contributors in
information technology. These organizations and individuals will be
in telecommunications, television, publishing, information industries,
related government agencies, and university departments.
The directory the first of its kind in this arena, should be useful
to information industries seeking to identify African-Americans for
opportunities and to African-Americans in government and information
industries, seeking to froge more productive ties through improved
communication across industry, government, and research categories.
The directory will provide short bios as well as the infromation
needed to contact these leaders.
We are excited about the vast possibilities that this directory could
produce. As you can imagine, the information industry is
significantly large and continues to grow. This being the case, we
are asking if you would please take a few minutes to assist us in
identifying these key black leaders. We would be grateful for your
contribution of any information to help ensure the success of this
The Afro-American Studies Program and I thank you for your help and
cooperation. Please send additional information via fax, e-mail, or
standard mail. Again, thank you for your participation and do not
hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.
