The Black Doctoral Network is leading the next generation of Black scholars to reach new heights. Encouraging intellectual curiosity and transformative research, the Black Doctoral Network is a bridge leader, creating paths between scholars, disciplines, and academic universities all while serving as an invaluable connection between higher education and the community at large.

Conference Information:

Due to the current landscape of the COVID-19 pandemic, we feel it is in the best interest of our attendees, staff, speakers and volunteers that we host our conference ONLINE this year and postpone our return to Atlanta until the 2022 conference. 

BDN2021 brings together both world renowned and emergent scholars and professionals from the social sciences, STEM and humanities to function as a resource, a support system, as a space of intellectual exchange, and a place to create connections and develop collaborations.

Keynote Speakers:

Dr. Gloria Ladson-Billings is the former Kellner Family Distinguished Professor of Urban Education in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction and faculty affiliate in the Department of Educational Policy Studies at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
