Mission Statement

Because athletics is still often viewed as a way to 'move up' economically in our society and because so many of our youth look up to athletes, we seek to develop a collective empowerment of Black male athletes....Then utilize that social and economic power to foster leadership in the objective evaluation of the current challenges facing African American male youth and act as a change agent creating activities and opportunities that encourage these young men to realize their full potential as productive members of their communities and our nation. We believe that we can encourage our youth to be proud of themselves and their heritage, to view education as a valuable goal, and to view helping the community as a worthy aspiration.

Program 1

The three primary programs run by The Alliance are Empowerment Day, the Franklin D. Watkins Award and the SAT Scrimmage. Empowerment Day Empowerment Day is held during Black History month and typically includes segments on our struggle as Black Americans, as well as, progress we have already achieved and the potential outcomes that are available to us if we continue to push forward. It is an effective tool to pass on to our young the sometimes painful history that people of African ancestry in this country share as well as an opportunity to pass on hope. It may be held in any number of cities annually. The Watkins Award It is awarded to four young black men, selected from across the United States, who have learned the importance of being well-rounded. The Watkins Award recognizes those young men who have excelled in the classroom, on the playing field, and in the community. These young men are nationally ranked high school athletes who also carry above a 3.0 G.they learn about the successes of others, often entrepreneurs, successful business people, and educators. These Black success stories reinforce in a more tangible way the importance, of literacy in mathematics, in computers, and in the sciences. The goal of this program is to help students learn how to take the exam known as the Scholastic Aptitude Test or S.A.T. The instruction in this program is provided by nationally known College Preparation educators. It is being directed toward two sets of students: (1) Students who might be interested in attending college but would not be able to afford to attend the preparatory fee-based S.A.T. instruction programs and (2) Student-Athletes who might be eligible to attend a college based on athletic ability but might be hindered by S.A.T. scores with regard to NCAA eligibility regulations.
