About the event
Black Love Convergence will be celebrating our 5th Year of gathering the Black Diaspora to fall in love with Blackness as an act of political resistance (b. hooks). This year’s gathering will bring together over 300 people virtually and at Acorn Center for Restoration under the theme Black Diasporic Wholeness: An Afro-Futurist Journey into Pleasure, Healing, Art & Spirituality June 17 - 19, 2022. Our work has always been borderless with an aim to gather Black people transgressing lands, identities, and limiting beliefs of Blackness. The richness of the Black Diaspora gives us access to the richness of practices keeping our people surviving, liberated and free. Blackness as an identity can be found thriving on the shores of the Caribbean, communities across the African continent, and marooned spaces across Europe and Canada. Join us for this celebration of Black life!
