Rites of Passage for the Young Black Male in America


The Rites of Passage for the Young Black Male in America is part of a movement to assist the black neighborhoods across the U.S. in community building that starts with the young black male as an integral component.

We now know that we must start as early as ten years of age with the training and building. We as a people must begin to re-learn and acknowledge our African roots to our children. Then hand off the torch to each and every boy so that he can take his rightful place in his community and his world.
