Black Male Achievement (BMA)

We have been committed to Black Male Achievement (BMA) since officially launching this movement in 2015. This collective group of local nonprofits, national foundations, membership networks and other leading organizations are improving life outcomes of black men and boys by closing the gap in reading proficiency, school discipline, unemployment and participation in the criminal justice system.

As a result of this powerful work, Louisville has become known as the epicenter of the BMA movement nationally and has been awarded and recognized as such by United Way Worldwide and the Campaign for Black Male Achievement!

Will it be an expense or an investment? Several community leaders in this space were asked to share their perspective on where we are, the work that needs to be done and the positive contributions of black men and boys in our community.
