African Americans have a long-standing tradition of adopting children within their communities through informal means. Yet, in spite of this tradition, many Black children remain overrepresented in the child welfare system without the benefit of family permanency. The purpose of this conference is to explore and discuss topics of adoption, foster care, and the quest for family permanency among Black Children and the families that love them. Families, youth, stakeholders and educators are welcomed to join in this one day event that focuses on the well-being and the future of African American children, families, and communities.
