By bringing together representatives from all the Africana Studies programs and related community interests and organizations in the state, this conference seeks to address pertinent issues and concerns directly and indirectly confronting African Diapsora peoples and studies. We hope to elicudate a clearer sense of what kinds of issues our communities face at this point in history. We recognize thereby that Black communities throughout the state of Florida have been subject to particular denials of rights which have been recognized natinally. It is therefore our responsibility as intellectuals and community workers to assess the nature of these experiences as we set the path for future advancement of some issues that are of concern to our communities.
