The organisers of the International Black Writers Festival have announced the timeline for the 2023 edition. The festival is an initiative of the Moorland-Spingarn Research Centre and Howard University. The event will take place from September 26-29, 2023, and will feature writers, academics, artists, and critics worldwide, as they engage in conversations around the theme of the festival, “Why We Gather: Toward Building a Black University.” 

In addition, the organisers will push for participants and attendees to reflect upon the 1968 Toward a Black University Conference. Festival activities will also include readings, panel discussions, workshops, and performances that cover a wide range of topics.
