“How do you imagine a "new normal"
when you lack the truth about the past and present of "normal"?
Welcome to the 13th Annual Community Empowerment Through Black Men Healing Conference being held virtually on June 24 & 25, 2021. The theme this year is "The New Normal." The objective in the face of COVID-19 and continued institutional racism is to take an in-depth look at what "The New Normal" could mean for the Black Community. The conference will explore the excellent opportunity to examine the truth about the past and the present of what is considered normal for the Black Community what we call “The black deconstruction” and at the same time envision strategies to construct a “New Normal" that will lead to community empowerment and healing. We realize that a stronger, thriving African American community improves the health of the community and the society as a whole.
This conference called “Groundbreaking and Visionary” from the 1st conference held in 2009, goal has been to provide an opportunity for meaningful community engagement and access to national and local educators, and community practitioners to discuss and introduce practical culturally sensitive trauma informed initiatives leading to the improved health and wellness of African American men and their families. We realize that a stronger, thriving African American community improves the health of the community and the society as a whole.
