This unique lifestyle is rooted in the African diaspora’s contributions to academia and culture, from its adjacent organizations to its pioneering nerds of the community. HBCUs were among the first institutionalized safe spaces for black nerds in the Americas. HBCU Con seeks to highlight the context and vitality of these spaces via its special events, programs, and campaigns.

We take pride in creating spaces that welcome and affirm geeks of all genders, sexualities, fandoms, occupations, religions, and ages…while centering the experiences of black nerds on a global scale. Pan-Africanism, the practice of unity among African descendants around the world, is a critical value of HBCUs.
