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.

Keynote Speaker: Victoria Rowell is an award winning actress, writer, and producer. She co-starred in “The Young and the Restless” and is an Emmy-nominated, NAACP-winning actress, who co-starred with Dick Van Dyke in “Diagnosis Murder”. Her New York Times bestseller, “The Women Who Raised Me ”, published by Harper Collins Publishers, received literary acclaim. She is the founder of the Rowell Foster Children Positive Plan and she frequently inspires others through her personal story of resilience as a former foster child.
