The Kente Summit is for undergraduate Black men who attend colleges and universities in Minnesota. The objective is to assemble male undergraduate students of African descent in order to build community across campuses, identities, experiences, and commonly faced issues while honoring identity, intersectionality, inclusion, and intentionality — the four cornerstones of the Kente Summit.
This event will center on finding, celebrating, and sustaining wellness and joy as Black men in 2021 after a challenging 2020 and will feature a special keynote address, Brotherhood Talking Circles, and interactive workshop. The Brotherhood Talking Circles portion of the event is limited to only students and facilitators.
The 10th annual Kente Summit for Collegiate Black Men will take place from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, March 6. Registration is free.
This virtual event will take place over Zoom, and a link will be sent to those who register.
Register online by Thursday, March 4.
Staff and faculty are encouraged to attend with their students. All who attend — students, staff, and faculty — are asked to register.
This event aims to provide a supportive space for participants to build community and strategies for success together.
