The Black Male Identity Project is using community art to change the way we think about what it means to be a black male.
Black Male Identity
The project is funded in large part by the Open Society Foundation’s Campaign for Black Achievement (CBMA). One of the major goals of the CBMA is promoting an asset-driven--as opposed to deficit-driven--narrative of black male identity, highlighting black males’ vast untapped potential. The Black Male Identity Project has the overall purpose of formulating and providing a framework for ongoing self-definition and image reclamation.

George Soros: How transparency can help end the "resource curse" and let new democracies flourish.
The natural resources sector has the potential to generate billions of dollars in revenues that can be used for poverty reduction and sound investment. For decades, however, management secrecy has allowed corruption to thrive in countries such as Angola, Cambodia and Guinea. According to Nigeria’s o
