What’s the price of swagger, if the cost is destroying our communities or selling our souls? This discussion was a success. The purpose of this workshop was to evaluate current behaviors and norms within the Black community and the value placed on those things. We examined how media, pop culture, and home environment affect what black males perceive as important. Attention was also focused on elevating status while still maintaining a sense of high integrity and responsibility, in addition to strong ethical and moral values. The session hoped to encourage an in-depth and interactive dialogue between audience participants and the program facilitators.
