Southwestern Black Student Leadership Conference Kicks Off
The 32nd annual Southwestern Black Student Leadership Conference (SBSLC) began Thursday and continues through Saturday on the Texas A&M University campus.
Since 1989, Texas A&M has hosted a forum for African American students in the southwest to assemble and address problems concerning the black community. The event, held each January, draws hundreds of attendees from across the country.
Themes explored at this year’s conference including “Utilizing the Light of the Past to Illuminate the Future,” “When will Tomorrow be Today?” and “The Revolution: Walk With Us.”
According to the SBSLC website, the conference “presents a number of creative workshops that focus on related topics and develop strong leadership skills,” and is “dedicated to addressing and developing solutions to major issues as well as bringing a spirit of unity among students and leaders of all levels.” More information can be found at its website.
