Identity and Culture in the African Diaspora: Intercultural Dynamics at Historically Black Colleges and Universities

Friday, June 2
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
LACC, Room 518

Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have a rich history of educating members of the African diaspora. As international educators, how do we engage different concepts of blackness and the cross-cultural misunderstandings that can occur? This session examines cross-cultural conflict and promotes innovative strategies to expand global engagement at HBCUs. This session was selected as the Region VII conference highlight.
