This is a bold and historic declaration to a nation that has yet to rally around investing and supporting the success of its Black boys.

Our approach is to inform and educate leaders and influencers: i.e. policymakers, educators, professionals, business and community leaders, investors, philanthropists, clergy, pro athletes and celebrities.

We believe too many leaders and influencers of America's Black boys are disconnected from the knowledge and networks that drive the 21st century innovation economy.

The result is a generation of lost, confused and angry youth who grow into lost, confused and angry men. They, in turn, continue to perpetrate the cyclical problem. The goal of our campaign is awareness and intervention.

So, we focus on the adults. The leaders. Those in positions of power and influence. And it is these folks we call to gather at our summits. It is these leaders and influencers we call upon to support our efforts.

Our campaign speaks of the problems and challenges, but only as the opening toward introducing and implementing solutions. Our summits Introduce unique visionary frameworks and call for a coalition of committed collaborators to work with us in implementing solutions that will disrupt the status quo and leverage today's innovative constructs, networks, technologies and opportunities to produce exponential (versus incremental) progress. The result is what we call Inclusive Competitiveness. The process is what we call Pipeline2Productivity. 

Our boys are talented. They are creative. They are smart. They hold within an inherent ingenuity that, if sufficiently tapped, could unleash a torrent of innovative entrepreneurs, job growth and generational wealth creation that benefits the overall economic competitiveness of every local region and the global economic competitiveness of the nation.

Will you join us in making an investment in America’s Black Boys? We believe it is a 21st century national economic imperative.

We hope you agree.
