About Thrive: WE ARE
This is Black Boy. The essence and the spirit of black men will be radiated on the stage. There are a lot of amazing Black men in this world (and in our own region). New and seasoned let’s celebrate them for their minds, endeavors, and very being. Let us celebrate their souls.

 

As Black Men we are so much more than what meets the eye:
We ARE strength and love. We ARE both focused and playful. We ARE beautiful. We ARE educators and educated. We ARE community. We ARE empowerment. We ARE compassionate. We ARE innovators. We ARE leaders and visionaries.

 

“Being a black man”… are four words forming a thought…. makes you ponder what is going to be said next. ”Being a black man in America? In Communities? Or in General?” Whatever the thought, black men must be celebrated. In a world where Brotha’s are ostracized, murdered, and labeled as less than. A world where Brotha’s are not told that they are loved and that they matter. We have to celebrate Black Men.

 

In the last two years, there have been over 400 deaths of black people in America. Within that same period of time, only 70% of black youth are graduating from high school, while 31% of them represent school-related arrests. We aren’t very far removed from segregation and our country’s very dark past. We are fighting amongst ourselves and still have to face the rest of the world. When will the change come? What is our catalyst? Repeatedly, history has proven, that we excel at whatever we choose to put our minds to. We must use our voices and talents to rise above the turmoil.

 

Being black in America can mean many things, good and bad. As men, we have been both dehumanized and idolized. We continue to strive forward and push ourselves to be better. In Black Men, we are so much more than what meets the eye: WE ARE ARTISTS. WE ARE STUDENTS. WE ARE HUSTLERS. WE ARE DOCTORS. WE ARE LOVERS. WE ARE LAWYERS. WE ARE TEACHERS. WE ARE FATHERS. WE ARE FRIENDS. WE ARE BROTHERS.
