The Blackout: Boys of Color Conference

The Blackout 2019 serves to uplift our future leaders –students in grades 3-12 – and raise awareness on issues such as economic empowerment, health, voting, education, leadership development and more. The Blackout event layout includes a step competition, and our Boys of Color Conference. The boys of color conference will take place on May 18th from 9am to 2pm at Bruce Elementary School. The purpose of The Blackout is to close the gap between students and the community. The B.L.A.C.K.O.U.T. or “Building Leadership and Cultivating Knowledge to Overcome, Understand, and Train” sole purpose is to bring the community closer in fellowship and awareness. This year’s theme is “Restoring the Power through Leadership.” The Blackout 2019 will advocate for academic excellence and success, as well as college readiness for adolescents.

Participants of The Blackout will be able to obtain necessary resources needed to be successful. These resources include, mentors and advisors, possible internships, community service opportunities, and most importantly academic enrichment.
