The Black Leadership Development Program is a highly selective program designed to appeal to African American leaders and emerging leaders. Its purpose is to develop a pool of African American men and women from various backgrounds with interest in, and leadership capacity for, effectively addressing ongoing and emerging community issues.

During this 11-month program, participants will meet monthly to learn through lectures, discussion, and direct experience of every major aspect of community life. Issues, from economics and education to criminal justice and intra-cultural diversity, will be explored.

Participants will also begin to develop working relationships with civic, social, political, and community leaders. To enhance the quality of the presentations, topic experts are used throughout the program to ensure the development of sharpened leadership skills.

Theses speakers are excellent motivators and educators. * Program session will be a combination of virtual and in person due to current health requirements and restrictions.

I changed my password everywhere to 'incorrect.' That way when I forget it, it always reminds me, 'Your password is incorrect.' If I won the award for laziness, I would send somebody to pick it up for me.
