Bold Leadership Excelsum (BLX): The Branding of Social Media 
In this workshop we will explore cultural misconceptions, popular practices and relationship building techniques with regards to teaching black and brown boys at the high school level. Under the framework of equity and access along with protocols from the Courageous Conversations about race discourse, we will engage in dialogue that will act as a catalyst in strengthening your ability to assist in the individual and educational growth of black and brown boys in education.
