Event description

Description

The Brown Boys of Boston EdCamp is an innovative meeting of the minds. Educators,
entrepreneurs, non-profit leaders, coaches, mentors, community leaders, parents, and teens of all
hues, nationalities, and experiences are all invited to participate in a progressive "Thinktank" in
which the incubation of knowledge and ideas drive us to change how we think about our work
with Black and Latino male youth.


This FREE "unconference" is different because the participants can also serve as presenters! If you
desire to host a workshop, present an Ed talk, lead a discussion, or showcase other creative
presentations that highlight creative strategies, approaches, and programming that puts our Black
and Latino males at the forefront--this is the venue for such an experience.


We are excited to have presenters and participants grapple with questions such as:
• What is the difference between manhood and masculinity?
• Am I more T'Challa or Killmonger?
• What developmental assets do our male youth need to possess to maintain healthy relationships?
• Why is being a "Bad Boy" so attractive?
• How Can Being a "Maker" help me succeed?
• Why is it so hard to be Black/Latino and male in America?
• Why does it feel like America fears the Black male?
• How do we cultivate a generation of youth who are producers versus consumers?
• How do I get my son re-engaged in school after he has experienced so much failure?
• How do you help me find my manhood when my daddy aint around?
• and many many more...


Please bring a friend and an appetite for learning something new. We also ask you to bring your
smartphones, tablets, and other wireless devices because we will use social media throughout the
day to share our ideas and resources that may also support those who were unable to attend.
