Herman Hudson Symposium

I attended the eighth annual Herman C. Hudson symposium a few weeks ago and wanted to briefly discuss my experience. Although I attend many national conferences, I enjoy taking advantage of educational opportunities on the IU campus. Each year, the Graduate Society of the Department of African American and African Diaspora Studies brings together scholars, community activists, scholars, and other professionals to interrogate definitions of, theorize about, and imagine new possibilities for the African Diaspora. I attended a session examining Black masculinity, sexual transmitted infections, and hip-hop/street culture. For more information about the Herman C. Hudson symposium, please visit the African American and African Diaspora Studies at www.indiana.edu/~afroamer
