Seiminar Description

Districts that create the space for, surface and learn from the voices of boys and young men of color can eliminate the racial inequities and institutionalized practices that marginalize, criminalize and ostracize these students. Using Courageous Conversation, participants will examine ways to transform school systems into environments that nurture high-level engagement and achievement. 

Participants will critically examine the data, school culture and climate that, according to Garrett Albert Duncan, renders black boys as "Beyond Love". In this one-day seminar, administrators, teachers and student support leaders will take up the challenge to intensify the support and development of boys and young men of color, to become My Brother's Keeper. 

**Completion of Beyond Diversity I is a prerequisite for this training**

Participant Outcomes

  • examine how societal patterns and experiences for Black Males plays out in schools.
