Keynote and educational sessions
- David Johns
National Black Justice Coalition
David Johns has been the executive director of the National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC) since September 2017. The civil rights organization empowers the black LGBTQ community and aims to end racism, homophobia and stigma against black LGBTQ people.
Before joining NBJC, the civil rights advocate worked for President Obama as the first executive director of the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans. During his tenure, which began in 2013 and ended when President Obama left office, the initiative worked to develop educational and workplace development programs that benefited African American students. The White House appointment came after Johns spent years working with members of Congress on education policy.
Johns is currently balancing his work with his pursuit of a Ph.D. in sociology and education policy at Columbia University. His research focuses on how public high schools shape and form black masculine identity. Informed by his work, and in an effort to use this research in his role at NBJC, Johns is looking to shift the way academic researchers think and talk about black students in public schools.
