Description

The Brothers Block Party
October 2-8, 2017

In partnership with the Central Brooklyn Economic Development Corporation, the BBPC presents the 1st Annual Brother’s Block Party--a week long festival dedicated to celebrating men of color, highlighting their innovative work across industries, promoting small businesses, and fostering community development.

Objective: The lives of men of color in the US have long been adversely affected by negative public perceptions and portrayals. From being denied jobs and advancement opportunities, to negative and often unwarranted police interactions the image of men of color have been tarnished.

The goal of The Brothers Block Party aims to debunk these myths by promoting the positive images on men of color while entertaining the masses through music, culture, fashion.
