TRACK I
Rebuilding the Village for the 21st Century
It takes a village to raise a child. Generations past often relied
on the community to step in and provide the same guidance
as family. It is imperative we rebuild the 21st century village
to include community leaders, community organizations,
educational institutions, family, and social media. This track
will examine and define the urgency of collective social
responsibility to include justice, politics, nontraditional family
structure, and fatherhood.
TRACK II
Exploring and Redefining the Male Identity in
the 21st Century
It is imperative for men to have a clear sense of identity in
order to establish their place in society. The 21st century
calls on men to be ready for challenges that often cause them
to doubt and ask: do I have what it takes to succeed? This
track will challenge the participants to explore the concept of
identity and how it affects their paths to success by redefining
masculinity, manhood, and academic achievement.
TRACK III
Navigating, Learning and Embracing Cultural
Landscapes in the 21st Century
Understanding where you have been provides a lens to where
you are going. African American and Latino males often lack
knowledge of their history. History can serve as motivation
in ways that can inspire us today. Culture is the integration
of language, religion, ethnicity, traditions, and values. Quite
often, in the United States, successful individuals must move
between two or more cultures; however, the challenge for
minority males today is their inability to successfully navigate
across cultural lines. Past cultural accomplishments often t ell
a story of struggle and pride. We invite you to share the history
“lessons” that are often omitted or distorted in the textbooks
TRACK IV
21st Century Success: Best Practices for
Academic Achievement
Educators are expected to function in a leadership capacity
and serve as a role model for our students. Our students need
a sense of security, acceptance, and belonging before they
know they can trust and follow their leaders. Institutions of
higher learning can be a place that creates a sense of family
for African American and Latino men. This track allows you the
opportunity to showcase best practices in career development,
mentoring programs, graduate education, and academic
support programs that provide a positive impact on college
success rates for minority males.
