Black and Latino Male Summit
Sat., Mar. 31, 2012
The 2012 Black and Latino Male Summit (BLMS) provides a forum for Black and Latino men to discuss issues on manhood and to develop strategies to achieve academic success, professional development, and wellness. This summit seeks to promote camaraderie, coalition building, and community between Black and Latino men.
The theme for this year's summit is "Black and Latino Male Summit 2012: A Sideline Story." Inspired by rapper J. Cole's song Sideline Story, the goal is to highlight and empower Black and Latino Males by putting them in the forefront rather than leaving them on the sideline.
Registration is now open for the 2012 Black and Latino Male Summit. Register at www.blacklatinomalesummit.com . Please join summit participants in discussing the opportunities, successes, and challenges facing African American and Latino collegiate men. The summit is open to all.
Dr. Victor Rios (University of California at Santa Barbara) is the keynote speaker. Professor Rios' 2011 book Punished: Policing the Lives of Black and Latino Boys (NYU Press) analyzes how juvenile crime policies and criminalization affect the everyday lives of urban youth. He has published on juvenile justice, masculinity, and race and crime in scholarly journals such as The Annals of the Academy of Political and Social Sciences, Latino Studies, and Critical Criminology. In 2011 Professor Rios received the Harold J. Plous award at UCSB and in 2010 he received the Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Mentoring Undergraduate Research.
