2019 Inaugural Boys & Men of Color Conference

Join us for one of many signature events that convene leaders to share promising practices and lessons learned, and to create collaborations with Black men and boys in communities in Durham and surrounding areas.

This event will be a convening that will bring youth and community leaders together to discuss strategies to support the lives of black males. The youth component will be similar to the Young Black Males Matter Day and will stress the importance of education. These sessions will provide leadership development for the boys of color. The adults will engage in sessions to address Black male homicides, education retention, health and wellness, entrepreneurship and social, economic and community advocacy.

Special Guests:

J. Caleb Perkins - Author, Remedy Network Inc.

Event Partners:

MBK Durham, North Carolina Central University, NCCU Male Achievement Center
