Students of African descent at the Claremont Colleges are hosting a conference titled, “Black Intersections: Resistance, Pride, and Liberation”, to discuss pertinent issues facing the Black community in the United States and abroad. The objective of the conference is to provide a space for Black students, faculty, and administration to discuss and publish their historical and contemporary works about acts of dissent, empowerment, and freedom. The conference is grounded in African-American historiography that can inform the process of one loving their Blackness and the impact on their liberation in contemporary society.
