Posted @withregram • @kcc_menscenter Dear Friends, Colleagues, Partners and Community Members, 

We are thrilled to open up registration for the 16th Annual CUNY Black Male Initiative Conference, titled:

“Our State of Mind In the Era of COVID, Racial Injustice and Emotional Trauma, Now What?”

Last year, we broadcasted our first ever virtual conference due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, even as we open back up, we’ve partnered with Kingsborough Community College, CUNY BMI’s  Men’s Resource Center, and CUNY TV to launch the second virtual conference.

Registration is now open, and you can access it by using this  link: https://tinyurl.com/CUNYBMI16THCONFERENCE.
 
While the conference remains free, we encourage everyone to donate to the CUNY Black Male Initiative, as we work to offset some of the cuts experienced throughout the pandemic. The need for student support is substantially greater during the pandemic and the return to school period for our students.
 
100% of the proceeds from your donations go directly to support CUNY BMI funded projects.  Please consider giving any amount that can help us build together.  To give, follow this link https://cunybmi16thconference.eventbrite.com  and please share this link with your networks.

As part of the Mayor’s City Artist Corps program, the nonprofit ArtBridge will be producing public art programs at NYCHA developments in all five boroughs. To implement this program, ArtBridge is seeking artists who live in NYCHA housing, or who are closely, personally connected to specific NYCHA communities. Selected artists will each be paid $6,000 to run workshops with NYCHA residents and produce artwork designs that derive from those workshops – artworks that reflect the lives and cultures of public housing residents.

Please share info and application with your constituents: http://bit.ly/artbridge-cac. The application deadline has been extended to August 31st, 2021.

ArtBridge Projects - City Artist Corps / Bridging the Divide
Overview: ArtBridge is one of several nonprofit organizations selected to implement City Artist Corps -- a Mayor's Office initiative that will fund hundreds of artists to culturally revitalize NYC as it emerges from the pandemic. ArtBridge's component of City Artists Corps will consist of a large-scale expansion of our ongoing program, Bridging the Divide -- artists fellowships at New York City housing Authority (NYCHA) developments throughout the city, in which artists design public artworks that reflect the lives, histories, cultures, talents, and aspirations of NYCHA residents. While COVID-19 has dramatically impacted all New Yorkers, NYCHA residents have faced disproportionate resulting economic hardship, with 48% of NYCHA households reporting temporary or permanent income loss. Now, more than ever, we believe that the voices of NYC's NYCHA communities need to be heard. With this program, we aim to partner hyper-local artists with NYCHA developments -- and especially artists who live in those developments

In our men’s group often there are healthy discussions surrounding the topics of manhood, fatherhood and masculinity. This topic of conversation was one of the subjects in our men’s group this month with the Jericho Project.

Throw back on a Tuesday, memories of in person classes, these now alumni now have all transformed and have accomplished their academic and employment goals since graduating the program....these young men continue to show their leadership to other young men in their communities and as a part of the CFA family. Not to mention the staff here who supports them even after they have completed the program.

This is what it is all about.

Posted @withregram • @barackobama I didn’t really know my father—he left my mother and me when I was two years old, and only traveled from Kenya to visit us once, when I was ten. That trip was the first and last I saw of him; after that, I heard from him only through the occasional letter, written on thin blue airmail paper that was preprinted to fold and address without an envelope.

His short visit had a profound impact on my life. My father gave me my first basketball and introduced me to jazz. But for the most part, the visit left me with more questions than it answered, and I knew I would have to figure out how to be a man on my own.

In our latest conversation on Renegades: Born in the USA, Bruce and I explore the topic of masculinity and the influence that our fathers—both flawed role models—had on our lives. We also talk about the message American culture sends to boys about what it means to be a man—a message that too often emphasizes physical toughness over sensitivity; the need to dominate over the ability to love and care for others. Listen now on Spotify.

“The quality of a father can be seen in the goals, dreams and aspirations he sets not only for himself, but for his family.”

Reed Markham’s quote encapsulates what we aim to provide at CUNY Fatherhood Academy. A support system, a second family, a brotherhood, who want to help fathers determine, set and follow through on the goals, dreams and aspirations they want to set for themselves and their families. We live in a time where many of our young men suffer from mixed messaging, lack of support and lack of knowledge of resources and opportunities. Join us in helping bridge these gaps, build these supports and guide young men towards the destinies they wish to shape for themselves!
