Event Details

Why this Event?

  •  Gang Violence
  • Increase Rate of Crime in Black Neighborhoods
  • Separation Between Black Men & Women
  • Single Parent Homes

The focus of reaching out to black men was formed as result of the problems in our community. We want to bring together black men and women from the state of Arkansas and surrounding areas to empower our black men by addressing issues that plague our community, race of people as a whole, and find solutions. 

Come hear youth, black men and women speak talk about manhood, money, entertainment industry, love, sex, relationships, & more.  We will feature workshops taught by leaders in the community, entertainment, massages, open discussion, and a Labor Day block party. This retreat is dedicated to our black men from the women who love them.   This event is for ladies & youth 12 & up as well.

This event is founded and spearheaded by Likita Stout a professional in the beauty industry and health and wellness guru.  She is also founder of Gannah, Inc. and The Movement, a community-based organization.
