Hello and welcome. I am proud to announce that UC Santa Barbara will be hosting the 12th annual Afrikan Black Coalition Conference from February 12th – 15th, 2016. The theme of our conference is “Planting the Seeds of the Future, Defining our Next Steps”. We are dedicating this year to creating a conference where we can not only discuss and collaborate on ideas regarding the advancement of black lives, but also enhance professional success of all attendees of the conference. This website is filled with several useful tools regarding the conference. I am excited to share the revolution and innovation that is planned for this conference.
