Your’re Invited
The 10th Annual Black Male Development Symposium will be held Saturday, May 13, 2017 on the campus of Arcadia University from 9am-5pm. This year’s conference theme, “Freedom Now: At What Cost?” will address how our community of Black men, inter-generationally, can assist one another in thinking and re-evaluating where they are as men, co-workers, lovers, husbands, fathers, brothers, and sons in a healthy and developmental manner. The 2017 Symposium will offer over 45 workshops presented by experienced facilitators who will provide informative and engaging sessions for students, parents, teachers and practitioners, a Literary Pavilion with nationally known authors, s series of afternoon EDU-TAINMENT sessions along with our famous E’s BarberShop Talk (named after our biggest supporter and Philly’s own E. Steven Collins). There will be a Middle School Institute with workshops that are more closely aligned with the needs of 6th, 7th and 8th grade students and a Parent Advocacy 101 Institute offered and designed to assist parents and caregivers in learning new ways to help engage their children in homework completion, staying safe on the Internet, positive ways to improve behavior, preparing them for the next level of school and providing them with culturally centered models for manhood and person hood development. Join us for our 10th Anniversary Reception on Friday, May 12th in Arcadia’s Grey Towers Castle.
