BLACK CITIZENSHIP INITIATIVE: THE BLACK CITIZENSHIP INITIATIVE EMBRACES AND PROMOTES AFRICAN-AMERICAN CONCEPTIONS OF DEMOCRACY AND PATRIOTISM THROUGH EDUCATIONAL AND ADVOCACY PROGRAMS FOCUSED ON RECONCEPTUALIZING AND REINVENTING CONCEPTIONS OF BLACK CITIZENSHIP BASED ON AFRICAN-AMERICAN HISTORY, TRADITIONS, CUSTOMS, CULTURE, BELIEF AND FAMILY VALUES. WE ARE TRAINING A NEW GENERATION OF BLACK PATRIOTS IN CIVICS, SOCIAL ADVOCACY, LEADERSHIP, COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION, ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP. THE BLACK CITIZENSHIP INITIATIVE IS COMPRISED OF SEVERAL INITIATIVES INCLUDING A RACIAL JUSTICE RITES OF PASSAGE YOUTH MENTORING PROGRAM, WHICH ALLOWS US TO PARTNER WITH COMMUNITIES RICH IN AFRICAN-AMERICAN CULTURE, CIVIL GROUPS AND ACTIVISTS, CHURCHES, COMMUNITY CENTERS, PUBLIC SCHOOLS, FOSTER HOMES AND BEYOND.
