2018 Impact Report: A Decade of Risk, Urgency and Momentum

New Report Highlights a Decade of Impact in the Black Male Achievement Field and Movement

PROGRESS SINCE 2008

Founded 10 years ago by the Open Society Foundations as a time-limited initiative to improve the life outcomes for Black men and boys in America, CBMA has gone on to catalyze a national movement for Black male achievement.

SEE HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE PAST DECADE:

"CBMA is a beacon for a lot of the field. It's the only organization that, regardless of issue, makes itself available to organizations on the ground to advance the cause for Black men and boys." Damon Hewitt, Executive Director, Executives’ Alliance for Boys and Men of Color

SEE HOW OUR MEMBERS HAVE BENEFITTED FROM BEING PART OF THE NATIONAL CBMA NETWORK:

"Just having a BMA Field is a major achievement. I remember when nobody wanted to talk about Black men and boys. Even if they did want to talk about it, they would say it was a hopeless cause." Dr. Jackie Copeland-Carson AnitaBorg.org COO; Black Philanthropy Month Founder; Author, The My Brother’s Keeper Initiative: A Collaborative Philanthropy Strategy to Address America’s Black Male Crisis (2008)
Even as we acknowledge our decade of progress, we must recognize that our Black men and boys still face peril and real obstacles on their path. To build the beloved communities we imagine will take sustained and expanded investments and commitment. We look forward to the next decade of progress, hand-in-hand with our members, partners and allies.
