TBMCI at Syracuse University June 21st
- Jun. 12, 2014 - SYRACUSE, N.Y. --
Recognized by The Boston Globe
because of the efforts achieved at our Boston Institute, TheBlackManCan, received over 70 boys in grades pre-K through 8th grades which was hosted at Shady Hill School in Cambridge. We added a bit of a twist by incorporating a session for parents which featured a documentary and panel discussion. The Boston Globe specifically captured the powerful imagery of a young boy learning to tie a Windsor Knot during the "Being Well Dressed" seminar as well as commented on the documentary, “American Promise”
which talked about the race dynamics that minority parents and their children face in society.
