Dr. Bernice A. King, youngest daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King is in the Twin Cities to carry on her father’s work. For the last two days she has facilitated a education and training certification program called Nonviolence365™. It is based on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s nonviolent leadership philosophy and methods.
This morning she spoke to help Ujamaa Place raise money to help offset the cost of the program.
Ujamaa Place is an African American culturally-centric organization focused on young men who may suffer multiple barriers to becoming stable. Ujamaa Place engages these young men to foster their development within the Ujamaa Place community and assist them in becoming stronger, more responsible, employed, prosperous men and fathers who provide and contribute positively to their families and community.
Ujamaa Place mission is to empower young Black men (ages 18-30) to redefine their concepts of themselves, manhood, success and positive community values.
The Ujamaa Men’s journey starts with “The Theory of Transformation”. This unique program enables Ujamaa Men to transition into society by working on key elements that will lead to their successful outcomes. For more information, go to: http://www.ujamaaplace.org
