Black Communities: A Conference for Collaboration is an event held in 2018 and 2019 in Durham, NC and taking place in 2020 as weekly webinars on Fridays at 11am CST (12pm EST). See the previous webinars here.
The next webinar is this Friday, June 5th at 11am. See details about this Friday’s webinar below, via the BlackCom co-chairs:
The United States is in the midst of a crisis of epic proportion and so, this week, the Black Communities webinar cannot be business as usual. We apologize for the unexpected change in programming but we feel the need to engage with current events as the issues are germane to what BlackCom is all about.
This week, co-hosts Mark Little and Karla Slocum will discuss the events surrounding the horrific killing of George Floyd and protests across the country against persistent anti-Black violence and police brutality. Our discussion will cover community building amid racial trauma, ongoing legacies of racial violence, and how it all relates to our work and lives. If this interests you and you have the energy, we hope you will join us on Friday, June 5th at 11 am CST, as always on Zoom.
You can join the next webinar online or via telephone 855-880-1246, passcode 984-6588-1912. If you will be calling in to the webinar from outside the US or Canada, we can provide a local call-in number for you.
Due to security issues, we unfortunately need to disable the chat and Q&A functions on Zoom. We regret this since it is one more layer of distancing that does not fit our goals for Black Communities. However, we still want to engage with you as best we can. Please email us any questions you might like us to address during the webinar. Questions can be sent by Friday at 8 am CST to BlackCommunities@unc.edu.
