African/African-american summit

The 2019 African/African-American summit was a two-day event held at Portland Community College. The Summit was a rousing success, bringing a multitude of individuals and families representing the African Diaspora and Africa together to support their personal, educational, and socio-economic empowerment.

 

The 2020 Summit is being postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we look forward to welcoming everyone again in 2021.
