Description

19th Annual National Black Graduate Student Conference
Heirs of the Dream: Building on a Tradition of Intellectual Excellence
Radisson Plaza Lord Baltimore ¡ñ Baltimore, Maryland
March 21-25, 2007



This year's conference theme, Heirs of the Dream: Building on a Tradition of Intellectual Excellence, is not only an acknowledgement of the immense scholarly heritage given by our foremothers and forefathers but also an opportunity to cast a vision that draws upon our rich contemporary resources. Our ancestors prophesied greatness for this generation, and it is our duty to fulfill this vision. We accept the responsibility as aspiring black intellectuals to make ready the way for our communities, and we invite you to join us as we reflect and repair, acknowledge and ascend, prepare and produce, envisage and encourage, and boldly blaze new trails!


The annual National Black Graduate Student Conference (NBGSC) is the hallmark event of the non-profit, student-run, and interdisciplinary National Black Graduate Student Association (NBGSA)¡ªthe nation¡¯s largest organization of its kind. The NBGSC is a large-scale gathering of intellectuals who share and exhibit work regarding their specific areas of interest and/or the needs and concerns of Black scholars. This venue facilitates an environment of fact-finding and problem-solving in face to face groups, workshops, and paper, poster, or panel presentations. The first-rate conference features high-quality networking opportunities with colleagues from around the country and an excellent career and graduate recruitment fair.
