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.

“A role model is one who is aware that the babies are watching and acts accordingly.”
