Cullen J. Davis Young Men of Color Symposium

Saturday, November 4 | 9 a.m.–3 p.m.

Parker’s 6th annual Young Men of Color Symposium host is a leadership conference for self-identified men of color in 6th–12th grades who attend independent schools.
The day will feature opportunities for participants to explore their multiple identities and learn skills geared towards self-advocacy and community-building. The goal of the event is to empower students to effect positive change in their lives and their communities, using newly acquired language and knowledge. Additionally, adult participants will attend workshops designed to help them critically examine how to create and sustain courageous, safe spaces within their school and beyond to effectively serve young self-identified men of color.
Keynote speaker: Award-winning educator, spoken word poet and public speaker Donovan Livingston.
