The Center for Black Literature at Medgar Evers College of the City University of New York (CBL) and presenting partner AKILA WORKSONGS, announced that the 15th National Black Writers Conference (NBWC2020) will be held virtually, from Wednesday, November 11, 2020, to Saturday, November 14, 2020. The Conference was rescheduled from its annually-held Spring dates due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ever so timely, this year’s theme, Activism, Identity, and Race: Playwrights and Screenwriters at the Crossroads, is a new focus for the conference that boldly affirms and celebrates the ways that Black playwrights and screenwriters expand society’s understanding of Black life and the human experience. CBL will also honor luminaries Carl Clay, Dominique Morisseau, Stanley Nelson, Voza Rivers and Richard Wesley, during its virtual NBWC Awards and Tribute Program, on November 14, 2020.
