igniting Progress, Demanding Equity! 2024 NC Black Summit

April 25-26, 2024









Mark your calendars for the 18th Annual NC Black Summit in Raleigh on April 25-26, 2024. This year’s theme, “Igniting Progress, Demanding Equity,” perfectly aligns as we approach the pivotal 2024 election—one of the most critical in our lifetime. The 2024 Summit brings together Black elected officials, public policy advocates, community stakeholders, and strategic partners to strategize on mobilizing voters, safeguarding voting rights, and addressing community issues for a more just and equitable North Carolina.

Join us at the 2024 NC Black Summit to be part of this critical conversation. Together, we can ignite progress and demand the equity our communities deserve.
