"ACTIVIST AND FILMMAKER, NATE PARKER, JOINS CBM TO HELP INCREASE POSITIVE ROLE MODELS AND MENTORS TO YOUTH IN UNDERSERVED COMMUNITIES."

Los Angeles, CA (March 24, 2015) - Today, the Los Angeles satellite office of Concerned Black Men - a President Obama supported program to increase mentorship in various underserved communities - announced that Activist, Filmmaker, Writer, and Entrepreneur, Nate Parker, will serve as the face and ambassador of its Reach Back Campaign. The Reach Back Campaign is an initiative created to increase the number of skilled and professional mentors to an underserved demographic of youth who participate in CBM's educational workshops. "We are excited to have Nate onboard to help draw attention to the need of professional and skilled mentors within our communities," said Jason McCuller, President of the LA satellite office." 

 

The Reach Back Campaign & Nate Parker partnership will run from March 24 through August 15, 2015. During which time, CBM will host several events with Nate Parker in efforts to increase the number of adult professionals to mentor CBM's youth while stimulating funding."As a man whose life has been shaped by the wisdom and guidance of many mentors, I am proud to be a part of an organization that promotes and facilitates 'reaching back' in an effort to support and cultivate our youth,"said Nate Parker.

This partnership was brought together by Succor - a multi-platform consulting company that serves to highlight social and topical issues. "There is nothing better than sowing into the minds and hearts of young people who are capable of changing the world," said D'Kwon Stackhouse, President of Succor.
