Join the Black Studies Collaboratory and the Department of African American Studies for our second Small Grantee Symposium, featuring the projects of 30 grantees from our Spring and Summer 2023 Small Grantee Program. Organized as a series of conversations around Black story telling, community care, gathering, archives and experimentation, and futures, the symposium centers new ways of telling stories about Black life. Professors Micah Khater, Zamansele Nsele, and Darieck Scott and former BSC fellows Caleb Dawson, Ms. Daphne Muse, and Jared Robinson will join us as panel moderators. Audience participation, engagement, and fellowship is welcome and encouraged.
