Black women often spend our lives living in boxes that someone else designed to control and confine us. This conference will unpack what it means for Black women to define for ourselves how we will show up in the world by centering our spirituality and culture, cultivating opportunities, and finding belonging.
The gathering will feature panel discussions, a writing workshop, and a presentation with Dr. Christena Cleveland. Be sure to register now. If you cannot attend, but would like to support KCTC’s efforts, please feel free to make a tax deductible donation here.
