Twenty-five Black male adult professionals once again descended on Dr. Martin Luther King Elementary School, 3275 N. 3rd St., for the recently held 20th annual African American Male Teach-In. The theme of this year’s event was: “Twenty Years and Still We Rise.” The professional Black men went to classrooms and taught a class and shared their life experiences with the students, especially the male students. The event included what has become a “rite of passage,” “The Gauntlet” where the men praised, patted on the shoulder, and “High-Five’d” the male students of the school as a way of encouraging them to do well in school and succeed in life. Two Black men were honored with African American Male Image Awards: Rahman Malik and Demetrius Brown. Entertainment was provided by the Imani Dancers.
