About this Event

Saturday February 27th- 48th Annual H. Naylor Fitzhugh Conference

The conference will celebrate Black achievement, and provide a forum for the exchange of ideas critical to the success of African-American business and community leaders. We will center the stories of resilient Black women leaders; those guiding us through a pandemic and recession while also fighting against institutional racism in support of the Black Lives Matter Movement. Our keynote speakers are Nikole Hannah-Jones, Pulitzer Prize-winning creator of the 1619 Project, and staff writer for the New York Times Magazine, and Jessie Woolley-Wilson (MBA 1990), President & CEO of DreamBox Learning.
