CACE 2024 addresses the importance of Black Studies and Black Stories. The conference features the themes of music, poetry, movement and wellness; stories of resilience and Black futures; culture, politics and economics—knowledge as action; and the lively arts. Come learn about Hip Hop and education, walking Black history at UNCG, public history and social justice, environmental movements, farming and food security, geographies and cultures of the diaspora, African American stories in digital media, Black wealth and class struggle, poetry and performance as resistance, and more!
In addition to four keynote events, this year’s conference features traditional papers, panel discussions, roundtables and other creative formats that highlight the processes of Black Studies and its advocacy for Black stories in higher education and the community at large.
