The "Talented Tenth" for Education, Leadership, and Community
UW-Platteville's Black Student Union (BSU) would like to thank all universities and colleges that participated in the 2014 Ebony Weekend Conference. We appreciate your attendance and hope that you had an enjoyable experience.
BSU welcomes you to the 10th Annual Ebony Weekend Conference, which takes place February 6-8, 2015. This year's theme will be the “Talented Tenth” for Education, Leadership, and Community, which will focus on a modern-day application of W.E.B. Dubois’ concept of the Talented Tenth. This conference will seek to inspire conference attendees to take concrete concepts and think about them on a higher level through civilized discourse. As a result of this conference, attendees will have the knowledge to become better leaders, as well as initiate change through their leadership within their respective communities.
We will accomplish this task through workshops, social interaction, dialogue, lecturers, networking, and entertainment. Are you willing to participate? If so, join us at the 2015 Ebony Weekend Conference taking place at the University of Wisconsin Platteville.
