Earlier this month, the “Black Male Educators Convening 6” gathered at Temple University. The sessions were so impassioned and engaging, attendees didn’t want to break for the lunch.

“We had to force them to go to lunch,” said Vincent Cobb, co-founder and CEO of The Fellowship: Black Male Educators for Social Justice, which hosted the event at the Howard Gittis Student Center.

Certainly, there was much for the group of 150, mostly African-American, male educators, parents and community members to discuss.
