Our annual conference, established in 1989 with the first conference taking place in 1990, brings national and international speakers and showcases student participation from UNCG majors, minors, and alumni who often go on to careers in leadership and advocacy. Community partners include area educators, librarians, farmers, environmentalists, preservationists, museums, and partner colleges and universities. Keynote speakers have included Annette Gordon-Reed, bell hooks, Michael Eric Dyson, Cornel West, and Lenora Fulani.


The 34th annual CACE 2024 addresses the importance of Black Studies and Black Stories. The conference addresses music, poetry, movement and wellness; stories of resilience and Black futures; culture, politics and economics—knowledge as action; and the lively arts. Come learn about Hip Hop and education, walking Black history at UNCG, public history and social justice, environmental movements, farming and food security, geographies and cultures of the diaspora, African American stories in digital media, Black wealth and class struggle, poetry and performance as resistance, and more.
