Description

What is the 2019 Black Blockchain Summit?

The 2019 Black Blockchain Summit is an interactive 2-day conferencing event, to be held September 9th and 10th 2019, at the prestigious Howard University in Washington DC, USA.

The 2019 Black Blockchain Summit brings together Blockchain enthusiasts, entrepreneurs and innovators to discuss a myriad of challenges facing Black communities of the diaspora and the continent of Africa.

Why DC, Why Now?

The objective of the 2019 Black Blockchain Summit is to generate innovative and lasting solutions that disrupt our currently unsustainable position within emergent technologies. We seek to bring lasting prosperity and independence via blockchain solutions as envisaged by freedom fighters and liberators in the “Arusha Declaration”.

The 2019 Black Blockchain Summit conference agenda is diverse; our speakers will discuss blockchain technology solutions in BARAZA format, an interactive debate format of the Swahili language. Check out our full agenda at:

We believe, through diligent use of technology; problems facing Black societies globally can be mitigated leveraging blockhain technology. Come and be a part of the discourse!
