Recognizing and Reckoning. Empowering Men of Color through Equity and Cultural Wealth. BHCC Center for Equity and Cultural Wealth Institute 2022

 5th Annual Center for Equity and Cultural Wealth Institute 

June 1-3, 2022

Re-envisioning our institutions as spaces designed to empower men of color will require a radical and honest reevaluation of who we are and what we do. This year’s Institute will center the cultural wealth of men of color and apply an equity-minded lens to our own institutions. The three-day experience will feature nationally renowned scholars, artists, and activists, including Dr. Ibram X. Kendi. June 1 and 2 will be held virtually and provide breakout sessions, workshops, and critical reflection and networking opportunities. June 3 will offer inperson and virtual opportunities to strategize and implement key takeaways from the Institute
