Knight Foundation campaign recognizes inspiring black males

A new campaign organized by the Knight Foundation and the Open Society Foundations' Campaign for Black Male Achievement is looking for a few good men.

The initiative's called BME (pronounced "Be Me"), and the organizers seek to recognize black males doing good in their communities and inspiring others by the way they live. Phase One of the two-part program asks African-American men living in the D to share their stories, which will be open to a community-wide vote.

Excerpt:

We're not looking for perfection. We just want to share stories about the good things that black males do for their community, how you serve your neighborhood and your city, and how you inspire others to join you. Because you may not always realize that you are an example for the future leaders of our communities, we're asking the people around you to come forth and recognize you, too.
