CBMA Brings the "Rumble" to Milwaukee

From April 30th to May 1st, the Campaign for Black Male Achievement took its flagship event "Rumble Young Man, Rumble" to the City of Milwaukee for the first time! For two and a half days, local leaders from various sectors gathered at the Harley Davidson Museum for a series of sessions and discussions designed to enhance individual and organizational leadership capacity, and strengthen local and national advocacy on behalf of Black men and boys. 

In addition to these workshops and sessions, Rumble Milwaukee featured remarks from Mayor Tom Barrett, along with artistic performances.

For a full recap of the convening, check out this interview featuring CBMA VP of Membership Steve Vassor with Milwaukee's NPR-affiliate station WUWM.
