ABC Santa Cruz has arrived people!!! The Afrikan Black Coalition (ABC) Conference is a subsidiary of the Afrikan Black Coalition, which is an organization composed of Black students from across the University of California. We hold the prestige of being the only statewide coalition of Black students in the country and our goal is to ensure that higher education is a system in which students of the African Diaspora feel safe, engaged and prioritized. This conference is a time for college students of the African diaspora to come together and tackle issues that are impacting them while simultaneously networking, developing skills to succeed professionally and most importantly building a stronger community. Through our theme, "Re-Imagining Black Activism," we hope to use this conference as a space to study the methods used by Black activists that came before us and brainstorm how we can envision activism through a different lens. We want to take the methods of the past and generate a new age of activism. An age of activism coupled with methods that are equally, if not more, innovative and impactful than those used by our predecessors. The conference is set to be held on President's day weekend (February 14th-17th, 2014). It is time to mobilize, organize, and get energized!
