A public forum on My Brother’s Keeper in Charlotte will be held on Aug. 1.
The conference on “Plotting the Path through HBCUs for African American Males” will be held at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church, 3400 Beatties Ford Road from 8:30 a.m.-12-30 p.m. A resource fair follows at 1 p.m.
The panel discussion of President Barack Obama’s initiative will include U.S. Rep. Alma Adams (D-N.C.) Charlotte Mayor Dan Clodfelter, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Supt. Ann Clark, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Association of Educators President Erlene Lyde and Charlotte’s Web Director Cory Carter. They’ll talk about policies and strategies on how school can provide academic, social and emotional support for student development.
Obama has encouraged local governments and community organizations across the U.S. to form partnerships for MBK, an initiative to address issues confronting men of color.
The Charlotte meeting is the second in a series of initiatives sponsored by the N.C. Alliance of Black School Educators. The first, held last week, was a political candidates forum on education. Other planned conferences include a voter education forum, parents’ assembly and leadership meeting.
