The “Smart’n Up” Black Male Summit is a Community-based motivational and educational summit designed to address the unique needs of Black men and boys. This is an opportunity to expose young Black males to empowering information, positive role models, potential mentors and critical resources to help them survive and succeed in an adverse society. We do not sugar coat our subject matter at the Black Male Summit. Our message is strong. Our workshops include presentations about Entrepreneurship, Building Confidence, Stop the Violence, among other critical topics. The target age group is 12 years and older. However, anyone (including women) are welcome to attend. Previous summits have been said to have been a life changing experience for those who attend.
