During our first two conferences, we brought together people to envision a world where data was no longer a weapon but a powerful tool to promote self-determination, build generational wealth, develop resilience and resistance to environmental catastrophe, and anchor a future where Black lives truly do matter.

This year, through panel discussions, workshops, live performances and a range of multi-modal experiences, we will be charting a new future for the role that data can and should play in the lives of Black people. We are hosting D4BL III at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts because we know that to change the role that data plays in our lives is to also change culture.
