In honor of Black History Month, join us for a meaningful moderated discussion with thought leaders and influencers.
This is virtual experience has been curated with the backdrop of the 2021 Black history theme, The Black Family: Representation, Identity, and Diversity. The black family has been a topic of study in many disciplines; history, literature, the visual arts, social policy and the culture of the culinary arts. The Black family knows no single location, since family reunions and genetic-ancestry searches testify to the spread of family members across states, nations, and continents. While the role of the Black family has been described by some as a microcosm of the entire race, its complexity as the “foundation” of African American life and history can be seen in numerous debates over how to represent its meaning from a historical perspective. The family offers a rich tapestry of images for exploring the African American realities of the past and present.
