Conference Theme:

Tipping Point: Reexamining and Reconceptualizing an Intersectional Black Politics

in the Era of “Racial Reconciliation.”

The Password for Registration is : NCOBPS2024

Since President George Washington’s plea of being wary of political factions, the birth of a party

system has taken shape across the United States of America’s political system. With the

evolution of political parties, African Americans have been striving to find an alliance that has

best served their diverse and intersectional interests in local, state, and national elections. With

the election of Barack Obama, the Republican Party has become more visibly anti-progressive

with the interest of African Americans; yet, it was the election of Donald Trump that has

dismantled the Republican Party. In the midst of an era of “racial reconciliation” and a broken

two-party system, how can African Americans manage their political power to help accomplish

their desired goals? This conference will explore the newest frontier of the need of a global

coalition of the African diaspora to create political power to help achieve its desired goals

throughout the globe.
