The Black Religion, Spirituality & Culture Fifth Annual Conference aims to create a safe and meaningful space for B.I.P.O.C. cultural-heritages and traditions of being and becoming. We will facilitate much-needed conversations around the global militarization of police and police brutality against Black and Brown folx across the African Diaspora. Students will engage in high-performance dance, movement, listening to panelists expand on the dance traditions of Vodou, Regla de Ocha-Ifá, Candomblé, Umbanda, and Traditional Ifá. The panels will flesh out Indigenous and African ways of being in community. The panels will also explore the dire need to come together as change agents to radically impact academia and our communities positively. Other panels will discuss the work being done by HDS alumni and scholarship undertaken by current HDS students.
