Bizzell CEO Speaks at African American Male Summit – New Bern, NC

The fourth annual African American Male Summit took place on July 28, 2018. The purpose of the event was to draw attention to the plight and concerns of African American men in how others see them; to showcase the skills and the successes of black men who have been marginalized and made to feel less than what they are; and to let them know, despite all the cultural issues that black men are facing, they can still be successful. The panel discussions comprised New Bern natives who came “home” to share insights and wisdom in promoting the growth, potentiality, and abilities of African American men. As a featured speaker, Dr. Bizzell shared, “I believe in giving back just so that someone else can see that they, too, can make it. If I made it, so can another person.” To learn more about the African American Male Summit, visit: .
