The Pan African Conference is committed to building and developing leadership skills in collegiate youth, and providing an opportunity for academic scholars, professionals, and community members to discuss the issues that affect descendants of Africa on a local, national, and international level.

This year, 2018, the Pan African Student Leadership Conference will focus its efforts on 'Vindicating the Suffering of Our Ancestors and Earning the Respect of Future Generations'! This theme is a mandate put forth by organizers in the Black Lives Matter Movement, a social justice organization guided by the fact that all Black lives matter, regardless of actual or perceived socio-economic status, sexual identity, disability, gender identity or expression, creed, religious affiliation, immigration status, or geographic location.

We invite secondary, postsecondary, and community leaders to join us for this year's conference as we discuss ways to vindicate the suffering of our ancestors and earn the respect of future generations in regards to the Black community!
