“Empowering Black and Latinx Men: Self-Identity, Masculinity, Intersectionality, and Solidarity”

Call for Workshop Proposals

The theme of the 2018 Black and Latinx Male Conference is: “Empowering Black and Latinx Men: Self-Identity, Masculinity, Intersectionality, and Solidarity.”  A goal of the conference is for students to share their lived experiences as Black and Latino men on predominately white liberal arts campuses in efforts to affirm their presence and space. An additional goal is to identify and address barriers that inhibit their collegiate experience and success. Finally, we hope to provide information that will assist students with successfully navigating their post-collegiate experiences.

CHAS invites proposals for concurrent workshops to be presented at the 2018 Black and Latinx Male Conference, November 2-4, 2018 at Kenyon College, Gambier, OH.  Concurrent workshops will be held on Saturday, November 3 at 10:00-10:45 AM; 11:00-11:45 AM; and 2:30-3:15 PM.
