DLL Storify of @BlackTechWeek 3-Day Technology Summit -- Day 1, Wednesday 2/17/16

Last update: Wednesday 2/17/16
Blacktech Week was established in 2014 by Code Fever to provide more impactful programming around Black History Month. In addition to celebrating innovators of color, the week's activities aim to change the narrative surrounding Miami's Black community, replacing it with innovation, creativity and technology.  The 3-Day Technology Summit is the week's main event.

Derek Pearson and Felicia Hatcher, co-founders of Blacktech Week, are scheduled to welcome attendees to the summit at 5 pm (Eastern). More information can be found on the summit,  schedule, and speakers pages
