Brotherhood Collective At Morehouse College

 A new partnership is forming with the goal of having real and measurable impact on the lives of African American Men and Boys in the Atlanta Metropolitan Area and you have been identified as a unity collective partner.  The Brotherhood Collective: A Morehouse CollegeInitiative will be a community effort to highlight successful grassroots programs, initiatives, families, churches, groups and organizations that are helping black males improve, grow, and reach their highest spiritual calling.

 

The Brotherhood Collective is a group of students, faculty, staff, alumni, administrators and supporters of Morehouse College who have come together to look at some new concepts and approaches to addressing the growth and development of African American Men and Boys. 

 

The following are the dropout rates of African American Boys in the Atlanta Metropolitan Area:

Statistics (2005/6) project that Atlanta Public Schools has a 66% dropout rate for black males, DeKalb County has a 53% rate, Fulton County has a 56% rate and Clayton County has a 66% rate for Black males not completing their graduation from high school on time (http://blackboysreport.org/node/38).

 

If you and/or your organization would like to become part of this unity collective, you would be called upon to provide leadership, technical assistance, recommendations and support for program development and initiatives. The collective’s first initiative will be to develop a comprehensive resource directory exclusively for Atlanta Area African American Men and Boys.  The Collective’s first programmatic initiative will be to host a national symposium to bring together the aforementioned entities as a catalyst to share and exchange successful ideas and concepts which are working on a grassroots level.  The collective’s first financial empowerment initiative will be to acquire working capital to implement its programs.

 

This collective will seek to bring together many groups and organizations that are already doing good work however, we all see the challenges facing our men and boys are not being reversed.  We have to take a closer look at ourselves and see if what we are doing is really making a real and impactful different as a whole. 

 

The Collective meets the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month in the Kilgore Center on the campus of Morehouse College from 2:00pm-3:30pm.
