Greetings all!

The Concerned Black Men of Richmond VA, Inc. recognized Black History Month with a visit to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.  It took place on Saturday, February 23rd and was well attended.

The tour was led by Ann Carlton and we saw the African Art and the Contemporary African American Art exhibits.  The youth corps was very engaged and well behaved during the entire tour.  Ms. Carlton was very knowledgeable about the culture and purpose of the African Art and took time to explain the significance of many of the pieces exhibited.

The Contemporary African American Art exhibit was comprised of pieces from slavery, the Harlem Renaissance Period and up to many of the current African American artisans.

Ms. Carlton talks about painter Kehinde Wiley who did the portrait of President Barack Obama.

The tour lasted about an hour. It was noted by some of the high school students that they recognized some of the artists from the Harlem Renaissance period because they are currently studying that in school.

We were accompanied on the tour by Allison Bennett Dyche, a graduate student at Virginia Commonwealth University. The Concerned Black Men of Richmond VA will be the subject for her podcast called “Shift”, where she tells stories of people and places, and the shifts they have made to help create their place in this world.

Allison interviewed the boys at the conclusion of the tour to get their opinion on the event as well as the programs that we provide.

Again, we would like to thank each of you for your continued patronage of the Concerned Black Men of Richmond!  It means the world to the young men that we serve and ensures that we will continue to impact the community in a positive way.

Sincerely,
Timothy Mallory

Greetings all,

Last month the Concerned Black Men of Richmond concluded our 2017-18 year with a cookout at Dorey Park.  The food and fellowship with parents, mentees, donors and brothers was enjoyed by all.  There is 1 graduate this year in the youth corps, Da’Vontae Ballou.   He has been a member since the 5th grade and graduated from Armstrong High School.  Da’Vontae will be attending J Sargent Reynolds Community College in the fall.

There were 2 of last year’s graduates in attendance, Torian Jones and Ramone Jeffers.  They shared their college experiences and it was great to see them achieving their goals!

Comments Off on Concerned Black Men of Richmond conducts Part 1 of Etiquette Event with Youth at Franklin Military Academy

April 26, 2018

Greetings,

The Concerned Black Men of RVA recently conducted our Etiquette Pt1 event.  The event was held on Saturday the 14th at Franklin Military Academy.  It is a prerequisite to the LaGrotta Ristorante fine dining outing that will be in May.  We discussed proper dress, table settings and how they are expected to conduct themselves in this type of environment.  The Concerned Black Men of RVA have been doing this since 2011 and have progressed to a point where the mentees are instructing each other on how to tie neckties!

 

Etiquette Pt 12018

We also played the movie “Courageous” which illustrates choices, consequences and fatherhood. This is the 2nd time we have shown this movie to our mentees and it was received very well.  Afterwards the boys were treated to lunch at McDonald’s.

Etiquette Pt 12018

We would like to again thank each of you who have donated to the Concerned Black Men of RVA.  Your support is an integral part to the success of our mission.  We strive each month to engage our youth with life enhancing experiences that will assist them in all their future endeavors.  Your support means the world to the youth that we serve!

 

Sincerely,
Timothy Mallory
