We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting the second Black Communities: A Conference for Collaboration on September 9-11, 2019 at the Carolina Theater in Durham, NC! The Black Communities Conference, a.k.a. #BlackCom2019, is a vibrant and uniquely important gathering featuring panel discussions, local tours, film screenings, workshops, keynotes, and more. Our core mission remains to foster collaboration among Black communities and universities for the purpose of enhancing Black community life and furthering the understanding of Black communities.
We hosted the first Black Communities Conference in April 2018, which drew nearly 600 attendees from 5 countries and 30 states. This led to new partnerships among community leaders and scholars across the world! Checkout one of the conference highlight videos.
We look forward to seeing you at #BlackCom2019!
