Date: April 18 – April 19, 2014
It’s been twenty years since the intellectual work of the African-American Men and Boys Initiative sponsored by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation was started. This led to the groundbreaking report by the National Task Force on African-American men and boys; Repairing the Breach: Key Ways to Support Family Life, Reclaim Our Streets and Rebuild Civil Society in America’s Communities.
The Harvard University Graduate School of Education’s Dean’s Advisory Committee on Equity and Diversity and the Morehouse Research Institute invite you to join us on the weekend of April 19th as we reflect on the significance of the taskforce and Repairing the Breach twenty years later with Dr. Bobby William Austin, the developer of the initiative and editor of the report.
