2024 Black Lives Matter Summit – Keynote Address by Cheryl Boyce-Taylor

April 16 @ 10:00 am - 11:15 am

We are excited to announce the 9th annual Black Lives Matter SUMMIT 2024 entitled “Black Creative Expression, Politics, and Social Change” which explores the power of Black expression, Black creativity, and Black politics while celebrating “50 Years of Hip Hop”. This event aims to provide a platform for thought-provoking discussions, artistic performances, and engaging conversations that highlight the rich contributions of the Black community in these interconnected realms.

Join us as we delve into the diverse forms of Black expression, from literature to visual arts, music to spoken word, and examine how these creative outlets intersect with political movements and social change. Come and be inspired by the vibrant voices and narratives that shape Black culture and make a lasting impact on our society. Together, let us celebrate the beauty, resilience, and transformative power of Black artistry and activism.

Cheryl Boyce-Taylor is a renowned Trinidadian immigrant poet raised in Queens, New York, and the author of seven poetry collections, including her most recent, The Limitless Heart: New and Selected Poems (1997-2022).
