Crisis to Connection: An Imperative for Our Black Boys Listening Session
Recording Date August 28, 2020
The Children’s Center brought community leaders together across systems and sectors, to highlight the intentional need and awareness required to support Detroit’s Black boys in relation to the impact that trauma plays as a factor in the trajectory of their lives.
Black boys are disproportionately affected by implicit bias, racism, and a lack of trauma-informed community support systems. They experience trauma at a much higher rate than their white counterparts. This disparity creates unimaginable challenges and keeps them from living their dreams and becoming the amazing people they were born to be.
We invite you to listen and watch this pre-recorded conversation to learn more about this Imperative.
