100 Black Men of Chicago host a College Fair this Saturday

The Black Star Project Supports 100 Black Men of Chicago at the 5th Annual 2007 College Scholarship Fair
Phillip Jackson, executive director of The Black Star Project, wants students to attend this college fair because they must have a sense of urgency and purpose about continuing their education and graduating from college.

Earning a college degree today creates the same level of opportunity for students that earning a high-school diploma did 15 years ago. And yet, fewer and fewer Black American students are applying to, enrolling in, attending or graduating from four-year colleges. Without a college degree, these students, especially males, are sentenced to low-paying jobs, under-employment, unemployment, street-corner hustling, illicit activity, prison and shortened life-spans. The economic engine to power the future of the Black community must be Black male students with college degrees. You can help these students with their college aspirations and planning by telling them to attend or taking them to the college fair sposored by 100 Black Men of Chicago.

Saturday, November 3rd, 2007 / 9:00am - 2:00pm
