We are also happy to be joined by Spring 2017 TED Resident and multimedia artist Bayeté Ross Smith. The TED Residency program is an incubator for breakthrough ideas. Bayeté's project examines the mindset and traditions of people of color who serve in combat for the US military, despite knowing that they will continue to face oppression when they return home. 


Here is the full agenda:

1. Welcome & Introductions -- Shawn Dove, CEO, CBMA and Kenneth Braswell, Executive Director, Fathers Incorporated; and Director, National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse (Moderating)
