Black Male Development Symposium
Posted by Arcadia University on April 6, 2015
The BMDS 2015 Planning Committee would like to invite you and the youth you serve to join us for our 9th Annual Black Male Development Symposium on Saturday, May 9, 2015 on the campus of Arcadia University, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. This year’s theme is “Reaching Out For The Brothers: A Call to Action.” We guarantee this day will be a life-changing experience for attendees as they strive to examine, explore, dissect, articulate and most importantly develop strategies that will irradiate the inter-generational challenges experienced by young and older black males alike. The 2015 Black Male Development Symposium (BMDS) will present workshops in distinct Pathways presented by individuals, programs, groups and organizations selected through a competitive national call for papers process. The Symposium will have over 30 authors and their books in our nationally known Literary Pavilion. This year’s BarberShop talk will be moderated by WURD’s Eric “Shomari” Grimes with some surprise guest. You can also support the symposium by placing an ad or supporting youth to attend through our Dollars for Scholars program.
