Black History Month Fundraiser

Violence committed by young boys has caught the attention of concerned citizens from criminologists to MP’s as the nation continues to search for the reasons behind the spike in teenage disorder.

While there is extensive blame on youth culture and the media, there is a depth of research that suggests that the core of such behaviours stems from the question What does it mean to be a boy growing up into a man in London?

Enter The Manhood Academy for Boys to Men, a group of black men charged with helping the youth in their community make the transition from boyhood to respectable contributors of their neighbourhood.

Davis J Williams, Founder of the Manhood Academy says “it is a challenging time to be a boy and a black boy at that. Boys need positive example of strong men, we believe we can be that example.”

Soul and sound is an organisation set up to, train, guide and empower young people, families and other disadvantaged groups from minority ethnic, marginalized socially-excluded Local and other communities. They use music, multimedia, business, health & fitness for social and life-skills development. They also develop projects and training tools for development and exchange of cultural, heritage, and social awareness.

Soul and Sound have been really successful with the ‘@ Home with’ series in which they celebrate musical legends, influential personalities and entertainers for their achievements so far. With this concept in mind, they have joined forces with The Manhood Academy to celebrate the achievements of the movers and shakers within the world of youth work who are instrumental in developing young people into respectable adults.

24th December 2018 (Christmas Eve) sees a group of brave teenagers journey to The Gambia, West Africa where they search for Manhood through a ancient tradition of Rites of Passage

Manhood Academy and Soul and Sound Together will host an event entitled:
