Boys to Men: Empowering African American Males

Boys to Men: Empowering African American Males

Thursday, July 26
3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Ernest N. Morial Convention Center
Expo Hall Main Stage

While statistics may show increased rates of incarceration, joblessness and low academic achievement for black males, there have been tremendous strides toward empowerment. In this conversation, hear from men who have achieved their dreams as they reflect upon common struggles and hopes every man encounters along the journey to success. Learn how they surpassed socioeconomic and personal barriers (health, employment, housing and education) and get empowered to reshape your future. This panel is also for women who want to empower the men in their lives.
