We are so grateful to have been invited to participate in the first national convening of MBK Rising! And we are so proud that our BAM alumni, Christian Champagne and Julius Robinson, could join and lead us in at this historic convening.
For Christian this was a reunification with President Obama as five years ago Christian helped the President launch MBK at The White House. Both Christian and Julius met The President when Obama sat in their BAM circle.
Also hear what Christian has to say about mentoring young men and BAM in this video titled, Why Mentors Matter: Diverse Approaches to Mentorship that Lead to Success.
MBK Rising! was created to build an ‘all-in’ national movement to champion President Barack Obama’s vision of a nation where nothing stands in the way of our boys and young men of color achieving their dreams, a mission we share. To watch the kick off with remarks from President Obama, Stephen Curry and many others, please watch below.
