"Our country is experiencing more racial division than it has in decades. Race continues to be a major determining factor in the American experience. How do we as African American believers live out God's Kingdom in these challenging times? 

The African American Leadership Conference is designed to affirm, equip, and challenge African American students to live lives based on sacred identity and God's Kingdom ethic. Kingdom Culture has been conceived in prayer by African American students and staff of the Southeast. We invite students and staff of all ethnicities to join us in a journey of revelation as we seek to live out together God's Kingdom in our world today.

This one-day event includes three main sessions, breakouts, lunch with missionaries and mentors, and an open-mic cultural showcase. The $20 registration fee includes lodging, lunch, and the conference. Lodging is a room for 4 people. If you would like your own room or your own bed, you will have to register multiple times. If you have any questions about registration, you can e-mail XASOUTHEASTSALT@GMAIL.COM."
