The Tarik Black Foundation will conclude the camp with An Evening for Boys and Men
NBA player Tarik Black and the Tarik Black Foundation
open their second camp for the summer. This is his camp for boys. It’s the 2nd Annual
TRANSFORMATION50 Basketball and Life Skills Camp. The camp starts on
Monday, July 9th and ends on July 13th with a new event “An Evening for Boys and
Men – A Conversation about Growing into Manhood.”
The event is a panel discussion and an opportunity to emphasize the importance of
good values, self-control, excellent work ethics and strong faith. This event is free and
open to the public – especially men and boys.
The panel will be moderated by George Weaver with the Los Angeles based
Brotherhood Crusade. Panelists include: former NFL Player Ken Hamlin, and the face of
the ‘Fed-Up” gun violence campaign Jerald Trotter (Don’t Lose Your Head Use Your
Head). Former Memphis Tiger Basketball star and current Denver Nugget Guard Will
Barton will assist Tarik Black with the basketball camp.
The foundation will present its annual awards for the Leonard Draper Guiding Hand
Award, Willie Gregory Touchstone Award, Sgt. Byron Johnson Neighborhood Officer
Role Model Award and the Coach Wesley Henning Northern Star Award to local leaders
who have made an impact on the lives of youth.
“The Evening for Boys and Men event is an exciting addition to what our foundation
sees as investing in the minds and spirits of our youth,” said Tarik Black, CEO, Tarik
Black Foundation. “This evening is a village discussion about growing from boys to
proud men and honoring men who have poured into the lives of youth.”
