The Chop: The Power of Black Men Organizing

We hope to build a confidential place for conversations and discussions that help each other achieve more growth, success, and happiness. We are not planning for a lot of people as there are only a few spots. If you are interested, I would love for you to join the conversation!

About the Event

I think you will agree with me,  we can make a bigger impact combining our efforts than each of us could do alone. This approach improves the likelihood of success, rather than attempting to solve a complex problem on their own. My father used to say there is nothing new underneath the sun or a thought that someone hasn’t had in this world. The true difference is what you do with those thoughts and new ideas. When we work together in a group on a common project, without relying on power or place, our collective impact is even greater. Society has been pushing Black men towards a narrative and stereotype that has caused a unique type of emotional isolation from our own community.  Sometimes we, as Black men are more comfortable talking about the basketball game than expressing our feelings or discussing trauma happening in our lives.

We recognize that every person runs into adversity and has an experience to share. However, in a community like this, what if these adversities and experiences are the same? Sometimes these situations can be heavy or unique, sensitive in nature or powerful lessons of learning.  Wouldn't it be powerful to  hear these truths from one another?  The KBMA believes that when we work together collectively and share information with one another we can address and influence the solutions to complex problems. We believe that providing a space to understand one another's experiences, discuss ideas, and strategize around these problems is necessary to develop that impact and on Thursday February 25th at 7:00pm the KBMA is doing exactly that. The purpose of The Chop is to support all black males in their growth through conversation. We aim for these learning environments to lead to dramatic increases in our opportunity to deliver that collective impact we all desire.
