Black Solidarity Conference at Yale University

February 14 - 16 (Sponsored by the Campus Life Black History Month Committee)

Five students selected through a application and essay process will attend the 19th Annual Black Solidarity Conference at Yale University in New Haven, CT. "Rooted: The Odyssey of Black Art" will explore the diversity of art mediums in their presentation of black culture and in their propagation and/or prevention of racism and stereotyping of the black community. Through a series of panels, discussions, and speakers, this year's conference participants will gain a historical understanding of the evolution of black art and analyze what role different forms of art play in the expression of black culture. The students will leave with a greater understanding of art as a form of activism, and will be armed with new strategies and ideas to organize the campus around black issues.This year's student attendees are Kadijah Singleton, Jessica-Ann Beepot, Dynasia Myles, Chaz Taylor, and Lena Ayechemi.
