Raising Black Boys: A Roundtable Event

February 18, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm


On February 18, 2016, The Cradle will host a roundtable discussion designed to promote an honest and open dialogue about the realities of raising a Black boy in today’s world. The event will be moderated by Derrick Young of CBS Channel 2 News.

We are bringing together a panel of distinguished African American men to talk about the challenges they face being Black men, and fathers, in today’s society. They will share the types of discussions that are taking place in their own homes, as well as the everyday fears they have about their sons’ safety and how they are raising them to become strong Black men.

Join us for a reception prior to the roundtable. Following the roundtable, there will be a question and answer session.

Panelists include:
•Kenard Gibbs, VP, Black Entertainment Television & CEO of Soul Train Holdings
•Ronald Holt, Commander, Chicago Police Department, Special Activities Division
•Dana K. O’Banion, Attorney and Children’s Book Author
•Tim King, Founder, President and CEO, Urban Prep Academies
•Jonathan Peck, Principal and Owner, Strategic Advice Services; Co-Founder of Concerned Black Men of Metropolitan Chicago
