The summit seeks the submission of ‘useful’ and ‘engaging’ program proposals. By useful, we mean proposals that provide participants with knowledge, skills, and strategies that they can apply to their lives and/or the lives of their families and communities. By engaging, we mean presentations that are interactive and creative. Each presentation will be allotted an hour (1) in the program schedule. As a presenter you have the option of doing a discussion, workshop, or panel. • Discussion/Panel – A group of two or more panelists engaging in a discussion amongst each other and the audience • Workshop – A presentation combined with an activity or series of activities surrounding the presentation topic
For the 2018 program, summit organizers invite proposals focused on the following topics related to Black, Latino, and Native engagement:
Being Black, Brown, and Native in America through the decades: Sessions may focus on the day-to-day experiences of Black, Latino, and Native males in America then and now. Topics might include masculinity, criminalization, and other overarching challenges of men of color living in the U.S.
Black, Brown, and Native Excellence in Higher Education: Sessions on this topic would focus on the academic and professional enhancement of young Black, Latino, and Native men in higher education institutions. Submissions may include research and practices that lead to Black, Latino and Native male success, retention, and mentorship.
Coalition-Building: This program area will focus on the successful approaches and practices of intercultural interactions amongst Black, Latino, and Native organizations and student groups. Submissions may include examples of historical and contemporary collaborations between Black, Latino, and Native men or the development of leadership skills that enable these young men to move forward.
