ODESSA - From economics, education, to social responsibility, to their impact in the minority community, there has been a lot to talk about this weekend at U.T. Permian Basin.

On Saturday, UTPB hosted the second annual conference to celebrate Black History Month.

Two panel discussions featured numerous speakers including professionals from our local communities here in the Permian Basin.

Officials say the conference is all about providing a view of the African-American experience and what it means to be an American.
