It is with enthusiasm and excitement that we write to invite you to participate in the  2nd Annual HBCU (Historically Black College & University) Africa Homecoming Virtual event to be held from July 23rd -25th, 2020. The theme for this year is Architecting the Post-COVID 19 Global Education Order – The Role of HBCUs and Africa Higher Education Stakeholders. Desired outcomes for the summit include the following:

  • Create vital bridges/linkages between HBCU stakeholders and African education stakeholders
