Explore What it Takes for Black Men to Navigate “Everyday Racism” while Maintaining a Sense of Dignity & Excellence

One year after the murder of George Floyd and other unarmed Black men, we pause to have an honest discussion about what it means to support Black men in 2021. This panel offers insights into the impact of this last year on the lives of Black men and what it means to live every day in a country where one’s very existence is often experienced as a threat. In this session, we explore work, family and spirituality. We explore what it takes for Black men to navigate “everyday racism” while maintaining a sense of dignity and excellence.

Hear Rev. Dr. Jamie Washington, the President and Founder of the Washington Consulting Group and Social Justice Training Institute, moderate this powerful event which includes the following panelists:
