What Does The Future Hold For The Black Male And His Family? (Rebroadcast)


9:00, Monday, January 19, 2015

African-Americans haven’t had it easy in this country but black males may have the most difficult time of all. They have been targeted, occasionally demonized, sometimes marginalized and often misunderstood. It is a challenging problem to solve but one that community leaders and UNC Charlotte’s Center for the Study of the New South have taken on. It’s also one we’ll hear more about in this encore edition of Charlotte Talks.


Dr. Jeffrey B. Leak - Associate professor of English and director of the Center for the Study of the New South at the UNC Charlotte.
The Rev. James R. "J.R." Covington - Minister Spiritual Guidance and Wellness at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church
Reggie Singleton - Director, Male’s Place Program
Nicholas Wharton-- Chief Operating Officer, Urban League of Central Carolinas, Inc. and President, Wharton & Wharton Associates LLC


UNC Charlotte’s Center for the Study of the New South presents "Heart and Soul: What the Health of the Black American Male Means to the Entire Community" on Monday, January 19 at 6:30 PM at UNC Charlotte Center City. This event is free and open to the public, RSVP requested at cwalto21@uncc.edu
