Yaad, ile, lakay, all languages have a word for home, shelter, a claim to a place, to a delineated territory of heritage. However, the experience of Black people across the world has created a unique yet divergent practice of creating and claiming home. This year’s Black in Design conference explores the Black home’s multidimensionality — as a literal structure that shelters, as a reflection of culture and traditions, and as spaces that are not entirely physical. The conference brings together keynote panels, workshops, and conversations that discuss and expand these themes with different thought leaders involved in designing and creating various interpretations of Black homes. Our goal is to establish a broader understanding and alternate ways of experiencing the Black home in an effort to reinforce the ideals of Black communities living across the country and larger diaspora so that we can plan for its future.
