You are cordially invited to the Beyond the Bricks Town Hall Event.

Supported by the Institute for Urban Research @ Morgan State University, Center for Urban Families, and Kinetics' T.R.U.C.E.  Movement taking place at Morgan State University!

Produced by Washington Koen Media, Beyond the Bricks is a documentary film project and national community engagement campaign created with the goal of promoting solutions for one of America's critical problems in education: the consistently low performance of black males in school. The film includes commentary from some of the country's foremost leaders, experts and scholars focused on black boys and their education including Newark Mayor Cory Booker, the Reverend Al Sharpton, and Schott Foundation President Dr. John Jackson, among others.

At the Town Hall meeting we will discuss and plan what we all can do to create healthy communities for our youth. Community leaders, educators, parents, and students from the Baltimore community are strongly encouraged to attend, there will be a screening of Beyond the Bricks (30 minute run time), a community-panel discussion and planning workshops. The panel discussion is an opportunity for the community to engage in purposeful dialogue concerning the current issues and solutions surrounding black male education. After the community panel discussion there will be planning workshops.
