In recognition of Black History Month, Guilford College hosted a symposium entitled, All Black Everything. The symposium focused on celebrating black culture. Various topics were discussed in relation to black culture, such as the economy and education.

The College of Social Work’s very own, Professor Sudie Nallo, was invited to be the keynote speaker. Dr. Nallo addressed the issue of economic sustainability in black America. She also discussed the role of education in black communities.

Considering that employment is an important issue within black communities, it was mentioned during the conference, that black people have difficulty gaining employment that pays more than the minimum wage. Dr. Nallo stated that 20.5% of people in the black community make up the underemployment rate. Professor Nallo added that education is a factor in contributing to the solution, in respect to addressing the underemployment rate.

The conference’s exploration of black culture proved to be very insightful. Overall, people connected to the symposium shared common thoughts along with Dr. Nallo’s speech. Professor Nallo’s remarks brought awareness to issues that impact the black community as a whole in America, as well as the students at Guilford.
