The Silent Epidemic

It is often with convention that we confine education to the regimentation of institution.  Yet, in our discernment that education must be a shared knowledge passed from one generation to the next, we miss the opportunity to learn through formative experience, faltering to the widespread emphasis of product as opposed to the possibility in educational intricacy. As youth are impressionable, it seems irresponsible to neglect the experiences that might possess any trail of developmental effect on the way in which one feels, thinks, or acts and simply dismiss them from the concept of education.

“The Silent Epidemic: The Educational Needs and Challenges for African American Males” explores these complexities often omitted from educational dialogue. Join in the exclusive discussion on October 8th in which honorary panelists will reveal insight into the realm of education probed by identity.  Moderated by City Year Columbus Executive Director Todd Tuney with an appearance by Major Michael B. Coleman, the night will consist of hors d’oeuvres from 5:30pm and a Q&A at 6:30pm.  As the event is schedule to take place at The Blackwell (2110 Tuttle Park Place, Columbus, OH 43210) make sure to RSVP and reserve your spot amid the limited space! Contact LaVonda Ramsey through email ( or call 614.227.8706 to RSVP!
