Nov. 5-6, 2021

The objective of the Kente Summit for Collegiate Black Men is to assemble male undergraduate students of African descent in order to build community across campuses, identities, experiences and commonly faced issues, while honoring identity, intersectionality, inclusion, and intentionality - the four cornerstones of the Kente Summit. Our hope is that this event will provide a supportive space for participants to build community and strategies for success together.
