We are very pleased to announce the date and city for the 13th Annual COSEBOC Gathering of Leaders. It will take place in the great city of Detroit, MI, from May 8-10, 2019. The highly acclaimed Young Men's Passage will convene on these same dates. Our theme for 2019 is Boys and Young Men of Color: Ready to Learn, Honored to Serve, Destined to Lead. The power of this theme will set the tone for a stirring, productive and engaging convening. We anticipate that the impact of our collective and individual learning will continue the positive momentum in service of boys and young men of color across this nation.

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.

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.
