Educating Our Young Men – Reflections on “Men of Color & Education” Forum

On March 2nd, Teach for America hosted an electrifying event entitled “Men of Color and Education: a Discussion on the Pursuit of Excellence."  Avery Fisher Hall at the Lincoln Center will never be the same.  The audience had come fully prepared to be a part of this dialogue on educating our young African American and Latino men.  From the panelists on stage to the people sitting in the last row, everyone was completely engaged - the energy was just amazing!  Teach for America is to be applauded for all their hard work and for bringing these issues to the fore.
