The Florida A&M University State of the Black Student Summit is set to make history in Tallahassee. The Summit is bringing together a diverse compilation of today’s top leaders from around the nation in business, academia, media, politics and education to discuss major issues affecting America’s students domestically and globally. This event is scheduled for Sunday, March 18, 2012 at the Al Lawson Gymnasium.
The goals of the Student Summit are to challenge students to think critically about national and global issues, raise awareness about issues that minority communities face, promote dialogue and exchange with our generation’s great minds, encourage entrepreneurial ideas, and strengthen the trust between politics and young adults.
The keynote speaker is John Legend, singer-songwriter and nine-time grammy award winner. John Legend is also the founder of the "Show Me" Campaign.
