On the Matter of Black Lives represents a movement force that brings focus to the experience of African Americans and those who seek to be more "woke" on the realities of racial justice in the United States--and potentially beyond. 

This intensive experiential conference is actively open to people of all identities to examine leadership, authority and identity in the post-Obama era. The work of the conference will attend to learning about those unconscious, implicit and often indiscernible aspects of how the Matter of Black Lives is a part of our discourse and actions, individually and collectively.

What will make this group relations conference different is that all consultants hold identities with African descent...In other words, this will be consciously, deliberately, and intentionally an all-Black staff conference. Attendees will explore what matters when the entire staff of a temporary organization identifies as Black (to varying degrees) while those who join as members of the conference represent diverse communities and reflect a range of racial and social identities.
