Black Women and Girls symposium is birthed from the collaborative efforts of critical interdisciplinary scholars who are challenged by the types of knowledge produced about and around Black women and girls.

Our Collaborative’s  larger purpose is to encourage and promote research on Black women and girls. As a research-working group, the Collaborative seeks to engage in critical works that complicate the existing narratives of Black women and girls and that speak to the heterogeneity of these populations on a global scale.

Our efforts include hosting an annual symposium that brings together a wide spectrum of participants to examine Black women and girls’ agency as producers of knowledge and agents of change.

**The Symposium is free to attend. If you are interested in helping to underwrite the 2017 Symposium please contact us at:**
