Video: The Plight of African American Males

This summit was designed around and rooted in a question posed to me when I was interviewed as a candidate for principal of the Peabody Elementary School. The question, If hired, Mr. Walker what will you do with black boys has remained etched in my mind, over all these years. My reply was immediate, the same thing that I will do with white boys and all students, Teach them.

Regional Gathering in Austin TX, Healing in the Village: Are the Children Well?

COSEBOC and partners are proud to announce the Austin Regional Gathering -- "Healing in the Village: Are the Children Well?" The Gathering will include a series of events for those in our community who are committed to the belief that the Village is not well if its children are not well. The first event will occur on Friday, January 25, 2019 on the campus of Huston-Tillotson University. Educators, policymakers, community leaders, and those who understand that there must be a true Conspiracy of Care designed to protect and serve the well-being of children, youth, and the community are urged to attend this day-long forum.
