Location: Regency EF (Ballroom Level)

Overview:

The goal of this Braintrust includes exposing the incentive for profit on all levels in the criminal justice system such as exposing the investors in this modern slavery trade, exposing corporations that push for harsh sentences in order to maintain the exploitation of their prison workforce, addressing police misconduct, extreme/trumped up charges of Black men and women, ending racist bail policies, exposing judges who engage in “fill occupancy guarantees”, for profit probation and parole services, and advocating for strategies to prevent recidivism as it relates to jobs, housing, and ending disenfranchisement. Participants will leave this session with a broader knowledge of privatized (for profit) prisons, which are a form of slavery, and the strategies needed to end the marginalization of Black men.

Taking A Cut Out of Life by 100 Black Men of America, Inc. is a traveling series birthed from the experiences of so many African American males, from youth to adulthood. In the book, The Miracles of Mentoring, Thomas W. Dortch Jr. remanences on a familiar scene where African American men discuss the issues of the community while sharing knowledge and opinions with youth. The barbershop has always been somewhat of a cultural rite of passage, where wisdom is shared with the next generation of men. In response to the urgent need to deliver real solutions, 100 Black Men of America, Inc. has activated the 100 Network to deliver the 100 Barber Shop Tour across the United States. Get ready for real-talk to enter the public discourse.

Fall Leadership Conference

Featured Entertainment

Raheem Devaugn

Cruise on the Potomac

Raheem DeVaughn’s story begins with music—his mother’s vinyl collection to be exact. “I always loved music so I would sneak into her record collection when she wasn’t around and play her stuff,” says DeVaughn. Although his parents were not together, his father, noted jazz musician Abdul Wadud, was an influence as well. “Music was just always around me”, says DeVaughn. “I can remember at a very young age, standing in my mother’s living room, listening to music and saying to myself, ‘I’m going to be an entertainer.’ It was that simple for me. I think I just always knew.”

Midnight Star

Back to Black Masquerade

Formed at Kentucky State University in 1976, MIDNIGHT STAR began as a self-contained party band in the P-Funk/ Earth Wind and Fire mode, and quickly earned a strong live reputation throughout the world. A 1978 New York City showcase inspired Solar Records chief Dick Griffey to sign the group, and early 80’s albums like The Beginning, Standing Together, and Victory gave MIDNIGHT STAR a chance to hone their chops. Every thing clicked together with the Certified Double Platinum Plus No Parking on the Dance Floor album that established MIDNIGHT STAR as world-renowned songwriters, producers, and entertainers.  

Demetria McKinney

Cruise on the Potomac

Demetria McKinney is a triple threat in the truest sense of the term. She is an award-winning actress who has played diverse roles on the big and small screens as well as the stage. She is a gifted singer with a rich voice requiring zero studio enhancements. And she is a skillful songwriting who thoughtfully expresses emotions in a way that instantly connects with listeners.

Cruise on the Potomac

Enjoy an evening with 100 Black Men of America, Inc. and experience the Potomac River like no other with the sounds of Jazz musicians, your favorite cocktail, and dancing.
