About Charlottesville

Charlottesville City Council and the City Manager have both prioritized the issue of Black Male Achievement, and launched the Charlottesville Alliance for Black Male Achievement. The Charlottesville Alliance for Black Male Achievement is dedicated to tackling long-standing systemic barriers to Black Male Achievement so all Black boys and men have equal opportunity to lead successful and meaningful lives. With support from the Campaign for Black Male Achievement, Charlottesville received a technical assistance grant from the National League of Cities to develop strategies to promote Black male achievement and develop a cohesive and coherent shared vision, measurable goals, and a clear plan to change the narrative and life outcomes for Black boys and young men in Charlottesville. With local leaders from Wes Bellamy to Kristin Szakos, the City has also built a long standing commitment to Black Male Achievement through its City of Promise effort - a Promise Neighborhood initiative designed to create a continuum of solutions with the potential to significantly improve the educational and developmental outcomes of children and youth in the 10th and PageWesthaven, and Star Hill neighborhoods. Additionally, city and community leaders have affirmed support for My Brother’s Keeper and Cities United. For these efforts, Charlottesville scored 76 out of 100 points.
