American Promise

American Promise is a documentary and campaign working empower black boys, their parents, educators and larger community and help close the black male achievement gap. Our campaign is dedicated to sparking conversations and actions around providing opportunities for our young black boys to succeed.

This space is meant as an opportunity to read and learn about what organizations, families and communities are doing to support our boys.
