The Black Male Summit seeks to inspire and encourage Black males to diligently pursue the acquisition of knowledge in the classroom as well as outside of the classroom. We believe that education and the proper use of knowledge is the key to stopping the downward social trajectory of the Black male in America. This year's program features a diverse group of motivational speakers hosted by Activist Deric Muhammad.
Lone Star College-North Harris, part of the Lone Star College System, is passionate about providing quality educational opportunities for the successful development of knowledge, skills and attitudes for a rapidly changing world. At all levels, educational institutions across the country are coordinating activities to promote multi-level success for African American males. Lone Star College-North Harris is proud to partner with community leaders like Deric Muhammad in this effort.
Muhammad along with LSC-North Harris hosted the first "Smart'n Up" Black Male Summit in 2008, receiving tremendous positive feedback from both organizers, community and student participants. It has since become an annual event. This year's summit is shaping up to be the most powerful one yet. Don't miss it!
