The Annual Symposium: Late summer, we host a symposium to review the year’s accomplishments, gather with the African American community of Durham and Fayetteville (North Carolina), have an HBCU intern reunion, and host a Board retreat. The symposium is open to all community members in and out of Fayetteville. Due to the health pandemic, the 2021 retreat was held virtually. In 2022, we held the symposium in-person at Melchor-Quick Meeting House in Fayetteville, NC. We look forward to holding an in-person symposium again on Saturday, July 22, 2023 at the Melchor-Quick Meeting House in Fayetteville, NC. We hope to see you there! Look out for more details on the 2023 retreat, which we will publish here on the events page.
