Dr. Sylvia M. Carley Signature Luncheon
Monday, March 26, 2018

The Black Brown & College Bound (BBCB) Summit at Hillsborough Community
College has emerged as one of the preeminent national forums to address
issues facing Black and Latino males in higher education. After eleven years,
the summit has been successful in attracting some of the most influential
national speakers and scholars to address the barriers that affect persistence
and completion among minority males. A series of theme-based workshops
on contemporary issues provide an important focus to the summit, bringing
together college students and practitioners to engage in dialogue about critical
issues, sharing successful strategies and best practices.

The highlight of the summit is the Dr. Sylvia Marion Carley Signature Luncheon
located at the Tampa Convention Center. More than 1,200 comprise the
audience of corporate sponsors, college administrators, students, staff and
community leaders, in addition to state and national elected officials. With a
message of national implication, the luncheon has attracted keynote speakers
of international prominence including John Legend, General Colin Powell, Steve
Harvey, Magic Johnson and Hill Harper.
