Imagine a sea of pink, girls cheering, women laughing, and a spirit of love and unity filling the atmosphere. That is what you see and feel at the Southern Black Girls and Women’s Consortium – Black Girls Dream Conference. This unique convening of Black girls, gender expansive youth, and women focuses on visioning, preserving culture, leadership, organizational development, organizing communities, mental and physical health and wellness, entrepreneurship, academic and collegiate preparation, hands-on STEAM programming and much more in a vibrant atmosphere of fun and celebration. It’s where Southern Black Girls reflect, reconnect, and rejuvenate our spirits.
Continuing this tradition, the 2024 Black Girls Dreams Conference with an emphasis on Afrofuturism aims to inspire attendees to dream even bigger but also give them the ability to execute. Afrofuturism envisions the future of Black life, liberated from societal oppression and earthly-bound constraints (NMAAHC).
