The Black Male Development Symposium
Changing the Images of Black MalesConference. Workshops. Trainings.Bring Stakeholder That Matter Together


frontThe mission of BMDS is to provide a forum that will present practical strategies, techniques, and solutions through the presentation of interactive workshops, presenters, best practices and resources that will assist attendees in developing realistic models and concrete recommendations they can put into practice in their respective communities. The Symposium serves as a place for finding models of the solution and not just a forum for pontification or “drive- by-conversation.”


The Symposium becomes a place for transformative action and communication where young men and their older counterparts along with women alike; can share intellectual, emotional, spiritual and cultural opportunities for growth and development that will improve the quality of life for Black males, their families and their communities.
