Alicia Keys and Jay Z are reuniting for a good cause. Just six years after collaborating for “Empire State of Mine,” the entertainers have been named as keynote speakers for Harvard University’s H. Naylor Fitzhugh Conference, which is being launched by the business school’s African American Student Union

Jay and Keys will share words of wisdom during the annual conference, which is titled “Transcend: Redefining Expectations,” taking place from February 5 through February 7, 2016. The event will focus on owning and operating black businesses, networking events, TED talks and panel discussions.

“We aim to celebrate African-American achievements, inspire many new milestones, and provide a forum for attendees to take on issues facing our community such as: What is the African-American business community’s response to social injustice? Where do African-Americans fit in to the ever expanding definition of diversity?” the AASU website reads.
