Have we as a people become so silent about things that matter that those who choose to speak up are the exception rather than the rule?

The Urban Congress on African American Males in Baton Rouge

On April 16, 2016, MetroMorphosis convened more than 250 people for the Urban Congress on African American Males in Baton Rouge. Attendees included elected officials, community leaders, members of the clergy, businessmen and women, college students and Black men from all walks of life. Delegates actively participated in several activities led by trained facilitators to understand which issues affecting Black boys and men need to addressed and what programs and structures are currently in place to assist with this endeavor.
