Campers Represent at 100 Black Men Gala

Saturday, October 27, 2012 the 100 Black Men of Greater South Bend held their third annual Gala at Century Center.  In addition to the usual Who’s Who of the community, three Innovative-Thinkers Camp participants were in attendance.  Alvin, Anthony, and Silas represented as members of both the Freedman Academy and Innovative-Thinkers Camp.  Silas spoke to an audience of over 600 people, about the impact that both programs have had on his life.  He did an excellent job and all of us that were in attendance were extremely proud.   Sy Barker, President of the 100 Black Men of Greater South Bend and Silas’ mentor said that when Silas was asked if he would be willing to speak at the gala he told them, “No problem.  I learned public speaking at Innovative-Thinkers Camp!”
