Event Details

Oakland, CA! You are cordially invited to the Beyond the Bricks Town Hall Event,  Supported byAllen Temple Baptist, Insight Center for Community Economic Development, Forward Ever Media/ 2025 Campaign, National Equity Project taking place at Allen Temple Baptist Church!

Produced by Washington Koen Media, Beyond the Bricks is a documentary film project and national community engagement campaign created with the goal of promoting solutions for one of America’s critical problems in education: the consistently low performance of black males in school. The film includes commentary from some of the country’s foremost leaders, experts and scholars focused on black boys and their education including Newark Mayor Cory Booker, the Reverend Al Sharpton, and Schott Foundation President Dr. John Jackson, among others.

At the Town Hall meeting we will discuss and plan what we all can do to create healthy communities for our youth. Community leaders, educators, parents, and students from the Oakland community are strongly encouraged to attend, there will be a screening of Beyond the Bricks (30 minute run time), a community-panel discussion and planning workshops. The panel discussion is an opportunity for the community to engage in purposeful dialogue concerning the current issues and solutions surrounding black male education. After the community panel discussion there will be planning workshops.

Limited seating is available for the workshops and they will be running simultaneously so you MUST RSVP, and to only group. The planning workshops are divided into three groups:

Students Peer-to-Peer

Parents and Educators

Community/ Policy Leaders

Limited seating is available for the workshops so you MUST RSVP to the group you will participate in. Due to space limitations full information is required for each planning workshop participant. Sign-in starts at 9 AM and the event begins at 10 AM.

Upon arrival you must check-in, in order to participate. There will be a waiting list if for any reason registration is full for your desired planning workshop.

Thank you so much for your participation and helping us bring Beyond the Bricks to your community! We look forward to seeing you there!
