Greetings and salutations,

The Concerned Black Men of Richmond, Inc. kicked off our 2018 session of events with a trip to Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson.  We viewed “The Sally Hemmings” exhibit which opened in 2017.  It is the first road trip that we have undertaken in a few years and was a great success!

We left Richmond in our van and 2 cars with 15 enthusiastic young men.  The staff at Monticello was very helpful and pleased that we chose them for one of our activities.  The tour started with a bus ride the grounds at Monticello.  The Sally Hemmings exhibit was a combination of videos, artifacts and a tour of slave quarters.  There was a promissory note for the purchase of a slave and many photos of the lineage of the Hemmings family line up to the present time.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about the information.  She entertained questions and there were many from the audience; some were even from our youth.

The tour bus driver showed us several points of interest on the way back to the entrance and we concluded with a visit to a slave burial ground near the exit.

We left Monticello and had lunch at Pizza Hut near the University of Virginia in downtown Charlottesville.

This was an outstanding, impactful event; and major achievement for CBM-RVA. This event was made possible in part by the generosity of Dr. Harold and Mrs. Carol Jones. They graciously paid for the admissions of all the mentees!  Thank you to each of you who have contributed to the Concerned Black Men of Richmond!  You are truly making a difference in the lives of our youth and the community.

 

Sincerely,
Tim Mallory
President-CBM-RVA

The Concerned Black Men of Richmond started the session off by attending the 30th Annual 2nd St Festival in Historic Jackson Ward October 6th & 7th.  We manned our usual booth next to the voter registration booth on Community Row.  There was a lot of interest shown in our organization and a couple of former members stopped by as well.  A few prominent politicians visited our booth and it was nice to thank Senator Jennifer McClellan in person for her assistance with the Capitol Tour that we went on last session.  There was a lot of interest shown by parents many expressed their appreciation for what we are doing in the community.

The 2nd Street Festival has provided The Concerned Black Men of Richmond with excellent exposure for a number of years and we hope the relationship will continue for years to come.

Thank you to all of you for your interest and patronage to our organization.  Your support means the world to the youth that we serve.

 

Sincerely,
Tim Mallory, President CBM-RVA

Comments Off on Concerned Black Men of Richmond holds ‘Improve Your Speaking’ activity at Franklin Miltary Academy

January 29, 2018

The Concerned Black Men of Richmond VA  are excited to kick off 2018!  We started with our “Improve Your Speaking” activity at Franklin Military Academy.  The activity was coordinated by Mark Robinson with the RVA chapter of the “Toastmasters”.  There were 11 mentees and 8 mentors in attendance. 

Stacy Taylor of the Richmond Toastmasters started the event with a review of some accepted techniques for proper public speaking.

Next, Mark Robinson elaborated on “LPR”, (listen, pause and respond); a technique for answering questions.

After a brief discussion, the mentees were required to draw a question from a bag and use the “LPR” technique to answer the question.  They were required to have an introduction, 3 points and a conclusion.  We started with volunteers and then called on each of the rest to apply what we discussed.

Each of the mentees met the requirements and most answered their first selection pulled from the bag!

Not to be out done, the mentors demonstrated their speaking prowess as well.  It was a great experience for all!
