Will You Invest in Teaching Black Boys to
In 2014, The Black Star
Project received very little government or foundation funding for our
programs to improve the lives of Black men and boys. But that did not stop us
from being one of the leading organizations in the country working to nurture,
save, educate and empower Black males.
Our programs over the past few
years include the Million Father March, Daddy Daughter Dances, MLK
Mentor Day for Young Black Men, Black Male Reading Academies, Math Boot Camps
for Young Black Men, Mass Black Male Graduation Ceremony, College Fairs for
Young Black Men, Take A Young Black Male To Worship and our
Young Black Men of Honor Mentor Program.
