Watch Our Special "Black Male Millennials" Story-telling Event at The Schomburg

On February 9th, CBMA was excited to host the special Black History Month event, "Black Male Millennials: Stories of Power, Purpose & Resilience" at The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem, New York.

This free event brought together three dynamic authors, Quentin Vennie, Jim St. Germain, and Richard L. Taylor, Jr., who each took the stage to share their journeys as young Black men in an effort to elevate more positive, nuanced and complex narratives of Black men and boys. The program also featured a performance by Grammy-Winning Singer-Songwriter Gordon Chambers from his latest album "Surrender." 

If you weren't able to attend, you can watch the full recording from "Black Male Millennials" now below! You're also invited to continue the conversation online, and catch up on our other 10th anniversary activities, by following the hashtag #CBMATurns10!
