BMPC2017 Presenters & Speakers

The aim of this conference is to bring together 100 emerging and prominent Black scholars, leaders, and activists from across the country, as well as allies and supporters from other communities to explore the relationship between race, religion, healing and the pursuit of individual and collective liberation and justice. These multidisciplinary experts represent fields as diverse as psychology, anthropology, education, history, politics and law. We are looking forward to learning from their vast expertise and lived experiences.
