Please join us for a Community Citizenship Mission Engagement Event sponsored by the Medical College of Wisconsin! The event is free and will be held on Zoom. Registration is required. Hear Dr. Ivor Benjamin, Alverno Divine, D Div, Reggie Moore, Jermaine Murry MS, and Ambrose WB speak about their experiences as Black men here in Milwaukee.
Black men raised in America, even in the wealthiest families and living in some of the most well-to-do neighborhoods, still earn less in adulthood than white men with similar backgrounds. These trends are reflected in the shortage of Black men in medicine, research, business, and leadership, and impact the social determinants of health and wealth in our community.
Hear and learn from the riveting stories of Black men who continue to make positive impact in their community despite challenges of race and stereotypes about Black men. They model resilience, healing, and thriving, while serving our community and building a new vision of a just, healthy, racism-free Milwaukee where everyone can thrive.
