"Loving Your Roots, Loving Yourself"

October 31-November 1, 2014

Legacy Black Student Leadership Conference Furman University

The Legacy Black Student Leadership Conference is designed to help students claim the legacy of leadership and service left by African American leaders too numerous to mention. The conference will expose students to practical leadership skills that can help them become confident leaders who realize their personal, professional, and spiritual goals. It will also provide a forum for discussing issues common to students of color at small, private colleges and universities in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.

The Legacy Black Student Leadership Conference will challenge students to build multicultural student organizations that provide a welcoming and affirming environment for students of color, while offering students opportunities to participate in culturally enriching and affirming activities. It will also challenge students to participate in and lend their voices to other campus organizations and committees so that they can prepare for living and working in an increasingly more global society.

In addition, the Legacy Black Student Leadership Conference will give students an opportunity to expand their personal and professional networks while enjoying high-energy entertainment.
