We Were in Memphis!
In its heart, the National Association of Black and White Men Together has always been a communal response to racism. This response, percolating since our founding in 1980, has drawn us together every summer for 36 years, empowering us as politically conscious gay men.
In 2016, for the first time ever, the National Association of Black and White Men Together convened in Memphis, Tennessee. Memphis—where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led his last march, gave his last speech, and drew his last breath—is steeped in civil rights history. Building upon this history, and our calling to continue the quest for racial justice, our 2016 convention was like no other.
To all those who participated in the convention, or who supported it in some way, please accept our sincere thanks!
