The Hub at the NAACP 114th National Convention: A Fusion of Black Culture, Social Impact, and Unforgettable Experiences

WASHINGTON – Recently, the NAACP announced that the 114th National Convention will feature The Hub, an immersive experience celebrating Black culture and promoting social impact. Free and open to the public, the Hub will take place at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, starting on July 28, 2023.

Attendees will be able to support Black-owned brands at the Retail Lab and hear from leading voices on topics such as building wealth, entrepreneurship, and mental wellness on the Hub Spotlight stage.

Among several activities, attendees can get health checks from health care providers, connect with companies at the Career Summit, experience Glow Garden, an innovative installation from students across the country, stop by Game Central, and step backstage at the NAACP Image Awards.

“The Hub is more than another event, it’s a tribute to the brilliance and resilience of the Black community,” said NAACP Chief of Marketing and Communications, Aba Blankson. “This vibrant space seamlessly blends art, culture, sports, entertainment, and technology, designed to spark the connections and conversations that inspire and fuel the power of imagination.”

The Hub begins on Friday, July 28th with Boston’s very own Mayor Michelle Wu set to take the stage and kick things off. Keeping the momentum alive, DJ Jazzy Jeff will take the spotlight, igniting the atmosphere with energy and setting the tone for an unforgettable experience at The Hub. A few other notable speakers include actor Marcus Scribner, artist Nikkolas Smith, journalist and influencer Elaine Welteroth and football legend Ryan Mundy.

We would like to thank each of the following key sponsors who help make the National Convention possible: Bain Capital, MassMutual, State Street, Sanofi, Boston Building Trades, JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Delta Airlines, and Verizon.

The Hub is free and open to the entire community – so come one, come all! Full details and scheduling for The Hub is available here.
