The day was dedicated to honoring Black peoples' rich heritage, culture, and contributions. The event was a vibrant acknowledgment of Black culture and Black Joy, and more than 600 high school students had the unique opportunity to experience the conference.

The day included a series of educational and cultural events, including traditional African music, dance, theatrical performances, a meal prepared by our very own culinary staff that included ethnic Black food choices, Sweet Potato Comfort Pie offered their “sacred dessert” and a lineup of esteemed speakers from across the state. These speakers covered a range of topics, from the significance of Black and African traditions to contemporary achievements and challenges faced by Black communities.
