The Largest Breakfast of its kind for Men on the East Coast!

The 9th Annual 900 Men Strong Scholarship and Community Service Awards Breakfast, April 4, 2020 at 8:30 am at the Chesapeake Conference Center.

The purpose of this breakfast is to bring together Men in our community to help with decreasing the number of African American young Men and others from dropping out of high school. Men must serve as role models to our young Men and inspire them to value their education.

We have the honor to welcome as our keynote speaker; Legendary Author, Educator, Minister, CNN and MSNBC Polictical Analysyt, Dr. Michael Eric Dyson. Dr. Dyson is a Georgetown University professor of Sociology, widely-respected author, contributing New York Times opinion writer, CNN and MSNBC political analyst, and host of the Michael Eric Dyson podcast featuring Dr. Dan Ratner. An ordained Baptist minister for more than 30 years, Essence magazine has named Dr. Dyson one of the 40 Most Inspiring African-Americans. Ebony magazine listed him among the 100 Most Influential Black Americans.

Michael Eric Dyson is an ordained minister and proven leader who will provide some inspiring remarks that speak to empowering Men to step up and make a difference in the lives of our young Men. Men and Boys of all ages, Sports Enthusiast, Educators, Active and Retired Military, Fathers, Sons, Brothers, Grand Dads, Uncles, and Nephews are invited to become a part of this regional wide effort to galvanize the Men of our communities to Stand Up to Make A Difference Through Education.

During this breakfast Six college bound seniors will be awarded $1,000 scholarships for their academic achievement. We will also honor three men and one College Student who have unselfishly given back to our community.

Over the past six years this breakfast has awarded over $56,000 in scholarships to deserving young men, attracted over 3,700 Men and Boys in attendance, and honored 29 Men with our distinguished W.H.Gray Community Service Award for exemplary leadership in giving back to the Hampton Roads community.
