The Pan African Conference is committed to developing and enhancing the leadership skills in our collegiate Black young adults, as well as provide opportunities for academic scholars, professionals, and community members to discuss issues that affect descendants of Africa on a local, national and international level.

Our 2019 conference will imagine new possiblitlities for economic justice, liberatory education, and political solidarity.Inspired by the imaginary city featured in the film Black Panther, we will consider pan africanism as a political project for healing, susbtaining, and loving ourselvses. We proclaim "We are Wakanda!" to celebrate our diversity.

We invite secondary, post-secondary, and community leaders to join us for this year's conference as we proclaim "We are Wakanda!" to celebrate our diversity!
