ABOUT US: African American Male Initiative

The UWM African American Male Initiative (AAMI) has hosted a December summit for Milwaukee’s black male youth and their allies since 2012, referred to as the Summit on Black Male Youth-Milwaukee (SOBMYM). The summit, held on UWM’s campus, serves as a meeting place for black male students, K-12 educators, administrators and their parent/guardians in the Metro Milwaukee Area. It fosters personal and professional development for all involved through reflection and dialogue.

In 2016, the summit reached more than 1,500 middle and high school African American male youth.
