“This unique experience will feature provocative dialogue examining the wide range of educational issues affecting Black males,” the College said in advance of the event.

“Participants will also share ideas and innovative practices in various disciplinary fields that consider how forces such as globalisation and internationalisation of education impact the experiences of Black males today.”

Dr. Lou Matthews, Director of Educational Standards and Accountability at the Ministry of Education, and Co-chair of the Local Planning Committee said, “The Black Male Colloquium comes at the time where we are collectively concerned about the life outcomes and quality for Black males in Bermuda.

“We hope it will prick and raise our national consciousness in ways that lead to sustained action, inspiration and hope.”

    The problem is the Job situation after you graduate from College with a Degree – I know many young Men who
    have had to take a lesser Job of chicken feed pay or seek employment abroad.
    I know because my Nephew has just found an overseas Job thus He’s gone England for work and my other Nephew found a job in New York and has no intentions of coming back to try finding a job here in this thin job market.
