Impactful and isolating. Two words that equally describe the role of Black male educators.
We know that students who experience a Black male educator are more likely to graduate high school. We know Black men spend more time mentoring students and spend more time socializing with students, building deeper relationships, and we also know that there is nowhere near enough of us. On Thursday, August 4th and Friday, August 5th, Black Men Teach is hosting Celebrating the Half Percent: The Inaugural Black Men Teach Conference.
Join us for a day and a half of fellowship, conversation, and brotherhood as we bring together 100 Black male educators. The conference will allow men to network and connect with brothers from all sectors of education. The event will include a special recognition for first-year teachers and empower and equip all of the men there for the 2022 school year and beyond.
Brothers, our children need you, the community needs you, and we need each other. We can’t wait to see you there.
