Black Youth Empowerment Community News events

Manitoba Anthropology Students Conference

We are proud to announce that our founder, Warren Clarke will be the Keynote speaker for the Manitoba Anthropology Students Conference.

Warren Clarke is a Ph.D. candidate in Sociology and his research focuses on Afro-Caribbean Black (ACB) marginalized male youth and their experience in youth employment training programs in Ontario and Quebec. He focuses on how these young men’s gender and race are perceived in the white settler Canadian colonial landscape and how they are able to seek employment.

The research he conducts goes towards understanding how to best support the social and economic development of these young men. Warren is a public scholar and has developed several community programs including the popular Carelton University Sociology course- Race, Gender & Sexuality Through the Arts. Also, the Barbershop Talk series: Black Men and Misconceptions, and the Afro-Caribbean Mentorship Program (ACMP). Understanding the impact of colonialism and working to create sustainable change in oppressed communities is foundational to both his research and social justice work.
