Black folks have been coming to the Allied Media Conference for years but our participation ebbs and flows. What would it look like to have Wakanda every year at AMC?! We will discuss ways to make the conference more accessible and sustainable for Black folks in and out of Detroit. Join us as we work to build community and connection for years to come! Participants will walk away with new friends and a new way to greet one another at the conference and beyond! Wakanda Foreva!
