Plenary IV: Special Town Hall - Saving Our Sons and Daughters: Black Lives Matter

Friday, July 31
4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Our youth are at an historical crossroads. African-Americans are now completing high school at the highest rates in history and they have almost matched the college enrollment levels of their white counterparts. On the other hand, the unemployment and incarceration rates for young African-American males and females are persistently high as compared to the national average and the achievement gaps are widening. Join a panel of young leaders, educators, entertainers, and activists as they confront these inequities and construct a strategy to ensure that all of our children not only survive but thrive.
