Event description

Description



The purpose of the I AM KING mini-seminar is to impart guidance and inspiration to black and other male minority youth in Harlem through anecdotes from older males who are making a positive impact in the world with their gifts, talents, and abilities.

This event is something I feel our young men of color and other minority male youth truly need – a chance to realize their potential, be inspired, and possibly change their lives forever!

Here are a few reasons why this seminar is so important:

· According to the NYC Mission Society, 25 percent of all adult males in central Harlem have been imprisoned at some point in their life.

· The New York Times reported that more than one in every six black men in the 24- to 54-year-old age group has disappeared from civic life, mainly because he either died young or was locked away in prison.

· Perhaps the most disturbing statistic, however, was recently published in the JAMA Pediatrics journal: The suicide rate among black boys ages 5 to 11 has risen from 1.78 to 3.47 per million over the last two decades.

The time for encouragement, unity, and inspiration is NOW!

We change the world when we begin to change ourselves and be a light to those around us.

Join us on January 21st, 2019 at the YMCA of Harlem from 11am to 3pm.

Food and Fellowship will be available after from 3pm-4pm
