Presented by:

Benjamin E. Youngdahl Professor of Social Development, Brown School
Principal Director, Race and Opportunity Lab

This presentation highlights historical positioning of Black male economic and well-being experiences in the United States, drawing connections to intentional oppressive actions, economic development, and the differentiated opportunity structures of our society. However, our region’s champions for change have been at work for the past seven years to ensure that Black boys transition to adulthood with a greater likelihood of health and upward economic mobility.

Join us to consider how community science, organizing for systems change, and a relentless investment and belief in the potential of Black boys and young men will lead to a more beloved and healthy St. Louis over the next 20 years.

This presentation is part of the Brown School's recognition of Black History Month.
