We recently celebrated that Cole, of Brown Boi Project (a Third Wave grant partner), was one of the 16 finalists for the inaugural class of Black Male Achievement Fellows. We are thrilled to announce that Cole made it all the way, and was awarded the BMA fellowship!!
The fellowship is part of a joint initiative by Echoing Green and Open Society Foundations (OSF) to support “visionary leaders who are generating new ideas for black male achievement in the areas such as fatherhood, mentoring, college preparatory programs, community-building, supportive wage work opportunities, communications, and philanthropic leadership”(Echoing Green).
Cole should be proud of this high-profile achievement! Her work to empower and train “masculine-of-center” young people, and to shape a radical new vision of non-oppressive masculinity certainly deserves this support.
