We will discuss the challenges and benefits to creating, maintaining and attending all-Black spaces. A conversation about all-Black spaces necessitates a conversation about what "Black" is and if it is necessary. Participants will leave with a wider and deeper understanding of the myriad experiences that fall under the "Black experience", a list of best practices for creating all-Black spaces and the outline of a collective statement.
