Due to the dearth of literature regarding HBCU writing centers a team of writing center professionals at a North Carolina started “The Conversation” to claim an identity and to secure a place for HBCU writing centers in the larger institutional context. The team invited the writing center staff of the other 10 North Carolina HBCUs to join in the effort. Within a few months, “The Conversation” evolved into the North Carolina HBCU Writing Center Consortium.In this chapter, the author shares the history and future of the organization.
