December 7th, during lunch, we will discuss qualities that make black male change-makers in the Charlotte community who they are. The Symposium will include brief remarks, a panel discussion with some of the ten men moderated by Ron Stodghill, and a facilitated table-discussion about those competencies that make black leaders successful. The symposium will result in a guide that defines those competencies for individuals mentoring our future black male leaders.

Ten Men: Examining the Passion and Progress of Black Men on Charlotte’s Historic West Side, will serve as the theme for the Symposium. A panel that will include some of Charlotte’s black male change-makers will be moderated by the book’s editor, Ron Stodghill with the intent of helping the community support young men in building successful futures.
