Black Communities: A Conference for Collaboration to take place April 23 – 25

While it may feel like the semester is winding down, we are just gearing up for two major events.  In three weeks, — the moment we have been waiting for — Black Communities: A Conference for Collaboration will open on April 23 – 25 at the Carolina Theatre in downtown Durham! Over 400 people have registered for this dynamic event that will showcase a rich and robust slate of workshops, presentations, working groups, community tours, films and more.  Representatives from communities, organizations and universities as far west as California, as far east as Connecticut, as far south as Mexico and as far north as Canada (and all that is in between) will fill out the conference.  Don’t miss out on the opportunity to hear women community leaders discuss The State of Black Communities in the Post-Obama Era, see a film on hip hop and HIV, or tour Pauli Murray’s presence in Durham’s Civil Rights history.  I can’t possibly list here all of the great things to come at the conference, so you will have to come see for yourself.
