13th Annual Leslie Campbell Black Youth Leadership Conference

Theme || "Crown Up"


Black History is often untold; this conference aims to demand students of the African Diaspora to take the “Crown” that is rightfully theirs--crowns from our ancestors and generations of black people.

The Leslie Campbell Black Youth Leadership Conference is a three-day, two-night weekend youth conference put on by ACE of the Student Recruitment and Retention Center (SRRC) at UC Davis for students who identify as black, African American, African or part of the African Diaspora. The purpose of this conference is to empower high school students to develop a sense of self and construct a positive identity revolving around their blackness, “race,” and “gender” through education. During this weekend, students will be exposed to workshops around black history/truth, scholarship/education, and contemporary issues within the black community. The conference will provide powerful, reflective, and affirming spaces to inspire the youth. Students will be mentored by other black college students throughout the weekend to create community in an educational space.
