Smart n' Up Miami Returns for Part 2!!!

According to statistics, one in every three Black males will see prison in their lifetime if current incarceration trends do not change. If properly inspired, instructed and redirected young Black men and boys can escape this dreaded fate.

The purpose of the Black Male Summit is to expose Black males to critical information presented in a way that INSPIRES them to make better choices in the future. We inspire them to see past mistakes as stepping stones that were once stumbling blocks. In all adversity, there is always opportunity. More importantly, we expose them to resources that give them the opportunity to take advantage of what they have learned onsite.

Continental Breakfast, Lunch & Refreshments Will Be Provided

***********************************************************

Screening & Panel Discussion of the Documentary Elementary Genocide with award winning film director Rahiem Shabazz!

We have an EPIDEMIC!!!!! It plagues our schools. It pushes our most vulnerable students into the juvenile and criminal justice systems. Statistics reflect that these policies disproportionately target students of color and those with a history of abuse, neglect, poverty or learning disabilities.” Let’s start with the fact that states predict how many prison beds they need to create based on third grade reading scores. The percentage of third graders who are not proficient in reading by third grade predicts how many of that cohort will spend time in prison.

Registration & Continental Breakfast beings at 10:00am. Screening begins promptly @ 11:00am.
