Men Raising Black Boys Conference - Powered by Black Men Heal

Harrisburg University


About the event

Generationally, there has been an ongoing communal strain on both the external and internal relationships for creating spaces for conversations around raising Black Boys given the current climate of our global society. Additionally, it has become important to create and hold spaces where we can holistically, authentically, and restoratively have dialogue around issues that impact our Black youth, particularly Black boys. As a result, Black Men Heal and the Men Raising Black Boys team are intentionally creating space in the form of a conference to focus on crucial and courageous conversations that center on individual introspection and collective accountability for all Men Raising Black Boys (MR.BB's).
