As national trends show how racial disparities and inequities continue to threaten education for Black students through discipline practices, lack of resources and a lack of cultural relevance, the ABEN Regional Conference addresses solutions that will create more independent thinking and value for Black students while keeping them connected to the educational process.

ABEN's founder, Executive Director and conference coordinator states, "The anti-Blackness that has always permeated American society is at an all-time high due to the toxicity of the current political environment. There is an urgent need to provide real-time solutions to what has been plaguing the education of Black students since the mostly failed attempts at integration in the 1950’s and 1960's. Their regional conference will inspire attendees to keep fighting for Black children and give them the tools to engage in battle more effectively."
