BMe Community Issues 2018 Call for Stories From Black Men

BMe Community is an award-winning network of community-builders known for defining people by their positive contributions to society and enlisting incredible black men who inspire us to be better together.

As a national network, BMe Community places a spotlight on the many ways that inspirational black men bring out the best in their cities so that these cities present a more attractive image as well. Since 2012, BMe has awarded more $2 million to men who are deeply committed to the well-being of others and are making a substantial positive impact on communities across the country.

The network is currently accepting applications from black men who are social entrepreneurs, innovators, and difference-makers in greater Akron, Louisville, Miami, or Pittsburgh. Through the program, recipients will receive up to $10,000 each to build on the good they are already doing within their communities and, ultimately, to help create a more caring and prosperous region through their efforts. Grant recipients also will travel to Washington, D.C., to be inducted into a  fellowship of their peers.

To be eligible, nominees must be black men who are at least 18 years old and live in   Akron, Louisville, Miami, or Pittsburgh..
