The group of experts has recently discussed the problem of colored children’s upbringing. The meeting was held in Chelsea at the High School of Fashion Industries on May 12.
Sharon Smith (a mother of the rap performer Mos Def) expressed a curious opinion at that panel discussion. She said that people who had children wouldn’t have the possibility to think only of themselves any more. Cheers rang out after she pronounced her statement and they were the sign that the audience shared her thought.
Later Brenda Greene, an English professor of Medgar Evers College, and the mother of the rapper Talib Kweli agreed with the mentioned opinion. One of them confirmed it stating that parents really play an important role in raising their kids and said that they must take the responsibilities which can’t be taken by anyone else but them.
The idea that folks play a crucial role in upbringing their children was proved through the meeting of the entire expert group. The panel discussion was the conclusion of establishing a range of activities by the Eagle Academy Foundation to educate for young colored men. The event was called Eagle Week.
The president of Foundation David Banks said that the activities were held to make the students believe in their being special and to let them be inspired by this idea.
The students who were present at the panel discussion on May 12 showed that they were really interested and received a lot of useful knowledge due to the activities.
Some measures of the Eagle Academies were held for the students of Brooklyn, Bronx and Queens.
