This is a great opportunity for young men to experience an empowering conference where they will meet and network with successful, positive thinking Black Men who want to see them excel and succeed in life.

This is an excellent event for the Memphis community and I hope that the turn out of young men is overwhelming. My son will be attending for the first time and I am just as excited about the conference as he is, maybe even more excited than he is.

Our young men see enough portrayals of violence, wrong doing and negative lifestyles in their communities and in the media. The EMBODI Conference gives them an opportunity to see that success is definitely an option for them. Our boys need as much positive influence as possible and the EMBODI Conference will definitely play a major role in giving them a dose of positive influence, positive networking and positive portrayals of strong black men.

  1. Black Girl:

    As black people, we can’t allow young black males to be kidnapped by ignorance, self-hatred, and violence. Being uneducated and anti-black is unacceptable…Period! If the current mindset is not eliminated within the near future, this generation can hang it up, literally and figuratively.
