Encouraging Civically Engaged Collegiate Black Men 

The purpose of Temple's Black Men Forum is to foster a supportive atmosphere of brotherhood among the black male community on campus. We are concerned with the political, social, and cultural issues regarding black men and women on Temple University’s campus and beyond, and we promote greater awareness and understanding of these issues through all appropriate means, including panel discussions, meetings, seminars, and active engagement with the community.

Our objective is to inspire young black men at Temple University to become civically active in their community in and around Temple University. In addition to inspiring our peers, we aim to provide the social-emotional support necessary to carry on the critical work as community leaders/servants.  Our yearly panel/forum and networking event serves as a catalyst for current student leaders to mentor rising black male leaders and encourage them to join their non-profits and initiatives to intentionally set and reach community building objectives.

Our forum was inspired by a panel discussion held at Temple University over three years ago and has since served as a encouraging fellowship event that rejuvenates and inspires more black men at Temple University to get civically active through intelligent and constructive discussion.
