The Office of Black Student Affairs at The Claremont Colleges is excited to announce the third annual Black Intersections Conference, a forum to discuss pertinent issues and events impacting Black communities locally and globally in a supportive, culturally engaging environment. The conference is a space for students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members of African descent to share their scholarship and converse around the factors that shape and impact Black identities and lived experiences.

We invite paper sessions, poster presentations, panels and workshops that speak to this year’s conference subthemes, Ignite. Imagine. Invest in education, history, media, love and sexuality, (dis)abilities studies, self-care, the sciences, solidarity and all other engaging areas. 
Hosted at Scripps College, Conference main events include a registration kickoff lunch, concurrent presentation sessions, keynote and closing dinner. Meals and events are included with admission. The Conference is free for enrolled students at The Claremont Colleges, $20 for Claremont Colleges faculty  and staff, and $50 for guests (non-TCC individuals).

All those who submit work must also complete the general registration form. Please review all information carefully prior to submitting.
