MLK Celebration Dinner

Africana Studies students are often sponsored by others, so they may enjoy the meal, be inspired by the nationally recognized speaker and celebrate with classmates when the outstanding student award is presented.

Joseph T. Taylor Symposium

The Joseph T. Taylor Symposium at IUPUI features a keynote speaker by local and national experts around issues of interest in urban America and among communities of color. Africana Studies students are granted a table at the event to share a meal together and hear an inspirational keynote speaker.
