Day 4 got here pretty quickly and in 24 hours I'll be headed back to the Lone Star State. But as the old saying goes, time flies when you're having fun and around some amazing Black LGBT leaders.
While the CBCF-ALC is having their prayer breakfast from 7:30-10:30 AM, those who didn't want to (or couldn't get) tickets to that event have 8:00 AM-1:00 PM workshops and sessions to attend,
Meanwhile up the Metro line on our side of town in NW DC we' ll start a packed Saturday of OOTH events. It starts from 9:00-10:00 AM with another OOTH 2o12 General Session which will be entitled The Future of the National Black Justice Coalition.
From 10:15-12:15 PM we'll have the Black LGBT Emerging Leaders Caucus entitled Taking a Seat at the Table: Energizing Black LGBT Youth to OWN Their Power Another 10:15-12:15 PM session will be entitled Invisible No More: A Roundtable of Elders in the Black LGBT Community
The third one in that 10:15-12:15 PM time slot will be the second one I was invited to participate in, the Bloggers’ Roundtable: How the LGBT Equality Movement Has Impacted Black America and the Media Landscape From 12:30-2:30 PM we'll have our Keynote Luncheon with the title of The Great Recession: Harnessing the Collective Economic Potential of the Black LGBT Community
When the Keynote Luncheon concludes, three more sessions in the 2:45-4:15 PM time slot
We Shall Not Be Moved:The Role of Faith in the Fight for Black LGBT Equality
Stemming the Tide of Aggression: Addressing Violence, Bias, and Hate Crimes in the Black LGBT Community
Healthy Bodies, Healthy Communities Black LGBT Health: An Exploration of Current Trends and ChallengesThe closing 2012 Out On The Hill General Session will happen from 4:30-5:30 and focus on highlights of upcoming events .
And from 6:00-9:30 PM is another ticketed CBCF-ALC event, the CBCF-ALC Phoenix Awards dinner. Yeah, I think I'll be chilling in the room at that time unless somebody in DC or OOTH has other ideas.
