What is BMEsTalk LIVE?

BMEsTalk LIVE is a dynamic, thought-provoking, and community strengthening engagement for Black Male Educators (BMEs).  It is a one-on-a-kind celebration designed for and by BMEs.  BMEsTalk LIVE is a gathering of 65+ BMEs centered around conversations and action planning to address the unique issues that impact Black Male Educators. 

Why BMEsTalk LIVE?

Because WE deserve a safe space to come together in community to celebrate one another.
