Conference Workshops

Breakfast With Champions

Listen to the history of our American civil rights leaders and activists, educators, and sports leaders; gain a better understanding on what these individuals have gone through to better the lives of African Americans; and have a fireside chat regarding our nation on today. Participants will leave knowing they too can become Champions of their work.

Civic Engagement Breakfast

Mission was to maximize the power and influence of the black men’s vote in the 2018 Mid-Term Election and beyond. Now that the Mid-Terms Election is over, how can we continue to keep people engaged to go to the voting polls moving forward? Panelists will discuss their perspectives regarding the outcome of the Mid-Terms election and provide strategies the Leadership Summit attendees can take back with them to increase the number of engaged citizens and voters within their communities for future elections.

Community Engagement: Violence Prevention

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “Violence is a serious public health problem. From infants to the elderly, it affects people in all stages of life. Many more survive violence and suffer physical, mental, and 
or emotional health problems throughout the rest of their lives.” Engage with panelists and listen to strategies that can be implemented within your community to prevent violence before it begins.

African American National Leadership Forum: High Quality Education & Performing Schools

Parents, teachers, legislative, and community leaders need to work together to advocate for high-quality education and performing schools. Having a high- quality education at a high-quality performing school makes all the difference for
students who are seeking to further their education beyond high school. Participants will leave knowing the impact high-quality education has on students, the benefits quality classroom teachers have on students’ success, and the advocacy steps needed to ensure high-quality education is provided at all schools regardless of the performance of the educational system.
