By Staff Report
Published February 23, 2018

Feb 24.

The Strategies for the Development of the African American Manchild Conference is in its 18th year of presenting powerful workshops, keynote speakers and hands-on activities that encourage male empowerment from birth to manhood to fatherhood to the seasoned stage of life. The workshops will provide strategies that cover the spectrum of Black male life from the personal to the public, at home and in the world abroad. This year’s conference will feature Rev. Najumna Smith-Pollard, Program Manager of the USC Cecil Murray Center for Community Engagement, and Amen Rahh, Pressor Emeritus of Africana Studies at CSU Long Beach. Both of these community leaders have years of experience empowering African-American men and their community. Los Angeles Southwest College, located in South Los Angeles, has been providing Access to Educational, Occupational, Social and Economic advancement for nearly two decades through the Manchild Conference. The charge was led by Dr. Earnestine Thomas-Robertson, now Dean Emeritus of LASC. This conference was created by a group of colleagues to develop a new paradigm that addressed every aspect of African-American male empowerment. The conference is scheduled for Saturday, February 24, 8a.m. – 3p.m. Registration begins at 7:30a.m. at Los Angeles Southwest College, 1600 W. Imperial Hwy., 90047.
