Event Details

The Nashville-based advocacy initiative HBCUstory Inc. announces its partnership with the historic Fisk University, as well as a return to the Music City for its third annual HBCUstory SYMPOSIUM, Oct. 9-10. The two-day research and cultural symposium, which will celebrate the beginning of the sesquicentennial of the Reconstruction, annually convenes more than 100 historically black college and university (HBCU) presidents, researchers, administrators, faculty members, students and alumni from across the nation.


This year’s symposium, themed, “Reconstruction in a New Age of Resistance: Respecting our Roots + Restoring our Rites,” will contextualize the resistance that proponents of black education faced during the Reconstruction era while juxtaposing those challenges with the economic, political, social and cultural climate in which the nation’s now 107 HBCUs operate.


The symposium has a two-part focus:

Theoretical, offering academicians and advanced students opportunities to share their current work on HBCUs.

Practical, offering practitioners opportunities to shed light on the most successful programs and best-practices currently underway at HBCUs around the nation.
