THE NEW DANGER:
Black and Latino Men Facing Evolving
The NEW DANGER is us? We are not an endangered species: nor are we dangerous. We are Black and Latino male students attending CHAS member institutions, who have moved beyond surviving to thriving. We reject stereotypes that question our excellence and we proclaim ourselves as emerging scholars and leaders of an ever-changing world. We accept the call to “uplift” our communities through proactive engagement, and unconditional support of our brothers and sisters. The very real and NEW DANGER derives from our unwavering commitment to being (becoming) a transformative force upon the world stage. As Black and Latino men, the future is ours: The NEW DANGER is us . . . in greater numbers as scholars and great influence as leaders!
In conjunction with CHAS, the Black and Latino men of ABLLE (Achieving Black and Latin Leaders of Excellence) at Swarthmore College invite you to join them for a weekend of discussion, skill-building, networking, and social activities.
