Event Details

Ted Talk PicKQED, 100 Black Men of the Bay Area Community School, Oakland Unified School District and OUSD Office of African American Male Achievement invite you to join us on Thursday, September 12, 2013 for KQED American Graduate Education Town Hall where the topic of discussion will highlight innovative educational solutions to the crisis facing Oakland’s African American male youth.

The event will open with remarks from KQED and the Oakland Unified School District, followed by a youth performance by Young, Gifted and Black, a cultural arts and education repertory group of youth that uses historic poetry, rap and song to teach Black History and Black Pride.

We will watch Geoffrey Canada’s TED TALKS EDUCATION segment, along with KQED’s documentary on African American Male Achievement and OUSD.

This will be followed by a panel discussion. Panelists are Dr. Mark Alexander (Founder, 100 Black Men Bay Area Community School), Mr. Christopher Chatmon (Executive Director, African American Male Achievement), Rev. Dr. Charley Hames, Jr. (Senior Pastor, Beebe Memorial Cathedral) and Ms. Jill Tucker (Education Reporter, San Francisco Chronicle).
