International Black Writer's Conference, Revisited

11/10/2018 - 11:00am to 6:00pm
Off Campus (see description)

Since its founding in 1970, the International Black Writer's Conference (IBWC) served as an important point of connection for Black writers in Chicago and beyond under the leadership of its founding executive director, Alice Browning, who organized the conference until her passing in 1984.

Therefore, as a tribute to Browning’s legacy and as part of the Smart Museum of Art's exhibition The Time Is Now!: Art Worlds of Chicago’s South Side, 1960–1980, her work will be honored and uplifted through a revisiting of the International Black Writer's Conference (IBWC).

Location: Parkway Ballroom; 4455 S King Dr, Chicago, Illinois 60653
