BSC 2016 Theme
THE MISEDUCATION: CHANGING HISTORY AS WE KNOW IT
This year's theme is meant to reflect on and analyze our past, while simultaneously looking toward our future. "The Miseducation" highlights the ways that Black histories have often been misconstrued, falsely constructed, and ignored in the US.
This year's Conference seeks to rectify this loss we have inherited. We hope to"Change History as We Know It" through the celebration of untold Black histories and successes in every sphere. By beginning to inherit our true histories, we hope to unite through communal knowing to build our futures together.
