It aimed to connect those of African descent across all disciplines – activists, entrepreneurs, finance, researchers, scholars, politicians, policymakers, law enforcement, lawyers, educators, and students – to provide a sense of community and serve as a platform for educating, networking, collaborating, and the sharing of ideas. The Summit also provided participants with updates on the current climate of the Black community living in Utah.
