“The Real Talk for Real Men” is an initiative open to all collegiate men at Florida A&M University scheduled for on Wednesday March 30, 2011, from 6 – 9 p.m. in the School of Journalism and Graphic Communication Lecture Hall.. The theme of the event is “The Importance of Making Good Decisions”.
The purpose of this event is to present speakers who will discuss problems concerning males and the problems they face living in America. Speakers will address the importance of decision-making on male students’ futures.
Scheduled speakers include former Tallahassee Chief of Police Walter McNeil, who was named the Quincy police chief last month. FAMU adjunct instructor Willie Graham will also speak.
“This is a major step to promote responsibility, accountability and from progress in young men,” Barbara Oguntade, coordinator of the event, said.
Oguntade said the forum is an opportunity for young men to seek guidance on how to achieve their goals as men from positive male role models. She said young men will find it helpful to consult with the speakers, especially those who have never had a positive male mentor or role model.
“[The event] is unique in its kind because it directly builds up and strengthens the character and qualities of the young men that will lead this generation,” Oguntade said.
Door prizes, refreshments and fliers will be distributed. After the presentations, there will be a question and answer portion from the audience.
The event will be held on Wednesday March 30, 2011, from 6 – 9 p.m. in the School of Journalism and Graphic Communication Lecture Hall.
