The Community Brainstorming Conference theme for 2016 was: The New Assault on Blackness: The Restructuring of Higher Education
The Community Brainstorming Conference (CBC) is an annual event that takes place once a year in January.
For this year’s Conference, we thank Dr. Pamela Malone, Judge Russell W. Stamper, and the Community Brainstorming Executive Committee, as well as panelists, Dr. Rob Smith (UWM History, and Cultures & Communities), Ms. Charmaine Lang (Doctoral Student, Africology, and Reproductive Justice Collective), Mr. Troy Washington (Doctural Student, Urban Education) and Mr. Lavelle Young (Black Student Union, President) for an excellent Community Brainstorming Conference discussion on Saturday, January 23, 2016. The invigorating panel discussion included student, faculty, and administrative perspectives. In the Question and Answer session, the perspectives of community members, UWM staff, alumni, and faculty from a variety of units and departments were shared.
