On November 20, 2018 at 4pm EST, the Coalition of Schools Educating Boys of Color is proud to announce its 2nd speaker of the academic year in our educational teleconference series, Conversations with Influential Thought Leaders. The goal of this series is to create, deepen and strengthen the capacity of educators and advocates dedicated to the affirmative development of boys and young men of color. 

Conversations with Influential Thought Leaders is a powerful forum for learning and inquiry. In these one-hour teleconference calls, Ron Walker engages prominent leaders in an inquiry that is focused on COSEBOC's 2019 theme: Boys & Young Men of Color: Ready to Learn, Honored to Serve, Destined to Lead. These conversations are followed by a Q&A inviting audience participation. These calls are currently free to all, but registration is required.  Join us and RSVP Now

Ron Walker's New Book Available for Purchase

After many years of thinking about writing a book to share a story about the power of hope, resilience and family, I finally did it. With the generous and consistent support of the American Reading Company, the book, Solomon's Plan, Gift Of Education from a Father to His Son is a reality. It is written in honor of my father, Solomon Walker. Solomon Walker, born in 1915 in Gaffney, South Carolina, never went to school, lost both parents at a young age and with determination made his way to Philadelphia at the age of 19 to begin a new life. The book is for students from middle school up and also a great read for adults. It is a very teachable, well researched and culturally vibrant read.
