Progress Report: Local Initiatives for addressing violence and problems affecting young Black Males

Over the past two decades the life chances of Black men in the United States has increasingly worsened even as the economic boom brought gains to other groups. Alarmingly, in recent years we have witnessed a large number of young Black males become more disconnected from mainstream society especially in the country’s inner cities. Join in as the panel discusses local initiatives currently underway for young Black males.
The University of Louisville/Yearlings Club Community Forum Series brings university faculty, community leaders and the African American community together to discuss important issues. Currently in its eleventh year, this exciting partnership has hosted community leaders to provide a forum to discuss important community issues.
The Forum Series is free and open to the public. Light refreshments served. For additional information, please contact: Clest Lanier (502) 852-3042 or email@example.com
