Black Male Educators Convening events are a hallmark of the Fellowship. Our Philadelphia Convenings have been held three times a year, focusing on advancing and celebrating the development, recruitment and retention of Black male educators. They’ve offered all-too-rare and meaningful opportunities for Black male educators and their supporters across the region to gather for what often turns out to be an educational and recharging experience that—in and of themselves—helps combat the high turnover rate typically found among Black male educators.
