CBMA reached a historic milestone, its 10-year anniversary. Originally launched as an three-year initiative of the Open Society Foundations, CBMA is now a nonprofit organization accelerating investments in Black men and boys.
Writes CEO Shawn Dove: “It is a challenge to embrace a celebratory mindset when I consider the paradox of promise and peril still facing America’s Black men and boys. Yes, we have come a long way, but what has gotten us here will not get us there. ‘There’ being our ability to point to a country that lives up to its ideals and is able to declare that it is a Promise of Place where Black men and boys, and all communities of color, are not merely surviving but thriving.”
