100 Black Men Hold Summer Camp Ceremony

July 2, 2014

As the nation reflects on how far we have come since the Civil Rights Act of 1964, one organization is continuing their tradition of empowering young black men.

The 100 Black Men of Central Virginia held a closing ceremony for their M-Cubed Summer Camp.

The camp focused on teaching math and leadership skills.

Nearly 50 boys from fifth to eighth grade attended with their families. They also each received awards for their participation in the camp.

“We believe in opportunity, that everyone should have the opportunity to do better,” said Pastor Rickey White. “We talk about the students upgrading in the greater than, not dropping down to the less than. So we help the students to try to learn from other students in the classroom so each one can pull each other up to do better.”

Their mentors wanted to make sure that they left knowing that they too can make a positive impact on their communities.
