3rd annual Black Male Summit to be held this month


Courtesy of the Dream Day Foundation

The Dream Day Foundation, in partnership with Harris Funeral Home, Kroger, Inc., McDonald’s of Auburn and Opelika and the Opelika City Council will host its 3rd Annual Black Male Summit on Saturday,  Oct. 24, 2020, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with registration beginning at 9 a.m.  Lunch will be offered.  This year’s summit will be hosted at the Opelika Sportsplex Amphitheater.  Due to COVID-19 the foundation has put in place a number of safety precautions.  All attendees will be screened at entrance with a temperature check, given a required mask to wear and required to practice social distancing.  All participants are asked to pre-register by phone at 334.663.6638.

Due to COVID-19, the foundation will limit its participants to middle school, high school and college students.  The theme for this year’s summit is “The Bigger Picture” in which topics will include the growing movement of Black Live Matters and issues facing the young Black Male in 2020.  These young men will hear from keynote speakers as well as participate in small group sessions.  The goal is for them to come away with a greater sense of purpose, accountability and motivation and with dreams of what their futures hold for them as responsible adult men.  The success of last year’s Summit has inspired us to include a Q & A session for parents as a way of support and to address their concerns.

Together WE can make a difference. Thanks in advance for your support in making a difference in our young men.

Sincerely, Marion A. Sankey Founder & Executive Director The Dream Day Foundation 334.663.6638
