Black Boys and Young Men Video Documentary
This year, the program will feature a documentary of Black Boys and Young Men at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. We need your help! We want to hear from Black boys and young men in elementary, middle, and high school to learn more about their experiences and perspectives during COVID-19. We have created a Flipgrid prompt for Black male students at each grade level to collect videos for us to create the documentary. We are asking Black male students and families to help us collect the videos. The documentary will be officially released at the program. You can access the videos with the links below:
We will provide a token of appreciation to young men who complete the video: https://rebrand.ly/VideoAppreciationBlackBoysMen.
