Texas HBCU Conference Series, Democracy Schools

Texas HBCU Conference Series, Democracy Schools, YEAR THREE at St. Philips College, San Antonio, TX, April 5-April 6 (Friday-Saturday), 2024

Development of the Democratic Person, Research/Practice Agenda

The Texas HBCU Conference Series, Democracy Schools is the historic gathering of students, faculty, and staff of Texas HBCUs and community partners that started in the spring of 2022 on the campus of Huston-Tillotson University (HT).  The conference series, now in year three, emerged from the efforts of students in the campuswide leadership development and civic engagement initiative known as Public Leadership in Faith and Social Justice Traditions (Public Leadership).

The conference series speaks to the moment of democratic peril America today faces.  It seeks to reclaim and renew visions of American democracy rooted in civic capacity, community traditions and institutions.
