David Banks

On November 15, 2017, the Coalition of Schools Educating Boys of Color is proud to announce its 2nd speaker 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. 

We are honored to have David C. Banks, President and CEO of the Eagle Academy Foundation, NYC. As President and CEO, David is responsible for the successful leadership and management of the Eagle Academy Foundation, which is charged with providing financial support for the academic enrichment programs at the Eagle Academy schools, offering professional development services to educators and administrators that want to effectively engage and teach inner city young men and the expansion and replication of the Eagle model.

Prior to becoming President and CEO of the Eagle Academy Foundation, David was the founding principal of the first Eagle Academy in the Bronx, NY. Preceding this, he served as the founding principal of the Bronx School for Law, Government and Justice, a theme-based high school that provided a unique opportunity to David to combine law and education background.

"David Banks is not just an extraordinary educator, he’s a great innovator. The Eagle Academy defied political correctness to do what was right for young men facing enormous challenges. It is a big idea that is saving lives and providing hope." (Joel Klein, ex-Chancellor of the New York City Department of Education)

From a respected educator who has advised Hillary Clinton and Cory Booker on scholastic issues, a “rare book that can bring tears to your eyes while showing the way to deep and meaningful social change” (New York Times bestselling author William Pollack).

David is a graduate of Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ and received his Juris Doctorate from St. John’s University. He earned his Education, Administration and Supervision certification by attending Brooklyn College, City College and Baruch College in NYC, simultaneously. David resides in New Jersey. He has four children, Jamaal, Aaliyah, Ali, and Malcolm Rashaad, and one grandchild, Hayley.

David will be asked to react and respond with thoughts and ideas to the 2018 COSEBOC theme, Boys and Young Men of Color: Liberated, Empowered and Educated. We anticipate a spirited, lively and informative conversation.
