2023 NC Black Summit: Moving Forward with Knowledge & Purpose


On April 27-28, we were thrilled to welcome attendees back to Raleigh since the COVID pandemic during the 17th Annual NC Black Summit: Moving Forward with Knowledge and Purpose. This year’s Summit was phenomenal, selling out to over 350 attendees. The two-day event provided an excellent opportunity for attendees to connect, learn and work together for the future of all North Carolinians. We were delighted to hear from esteemed panelists and distinguished guest speakers, including Dr. Sharon Contreras, Associate Justice Anita Earls, and a powerful closing keynote from Representative Justin J. Pearson. Thank you for being part of this memorable experience.

We look forward to seeing you in April 2024 to engage, discuss and collaborate on critical issues impacting OUR community.
