Black and Brown Summit

Reviving Our Roots Through Courageous Conversations

November 15, 2014 — Highline College



To empower and motivate our Black and Brown young men to excel in academics and to accept nothing less than excellence from self.


  • Critique social structures that inhibit Black/Brown young men from being successful in education.
  • Highlight the achievements in spite of the obstacles/barriers that they face.
  • Contextualize their self identity socially, culturally, historically, and politically by giving the young men a sense of self and value of self.

Free Admission  •  Free Breakfast and Lunch  •  Free Enlightenment


A full agenda for the November 2014 Summit coming soon.



I learned that I need to first understand my misunderstandings of others then seek the truth before making more progress in my own growth

I learned to not let anyone bring you down and better yourself. Always have confidence whereever you go

The thing I like the most overall in the summit was the speakers because they spoke reality

I liked meeting new people and learning new things

The speakers were personal and knew our problems
