Info: Ras Samoki, 72 255 471 or

What is this: A practical and interactive seminar for ambitious Brothers, with an open and honest reflection on some of the daily challenges facing Black Men today – and dialogue on how to respond to them, from an African perspective.

Who can participate: Black / African men of any age, nationality and language background.

In our communities we observe much confusion about manhood and many negative stereotypes about Black men as lazy, abusive and useless. So how does one respond to the challenges and how does one shape oneself into a balanced man? These questions will be discussed in a practical and African-centred way, to engage Black men of all ages.

Program: Presentations, discussions, solutions and inspirational Brotherhood.

As Black Men we are often seen as a problem. We are linked to violence, poverty, crime and laziness. Why is this so? Do we see ourselves as a problem? Are we all useless fathers, abusive partners, cheating husbands and lazy providers? Can we see Afrikan men as…. BEING SOLUTIONS? And, if so, what do we have to DO for this to be reality?

Program: Presentations, discussions, solutions and inspirational Brotherhood
