The State of SEL in the Community: Building A Better Brother

Under the leadership of Superintendent AbdulSaleem Hasan in partnership with The Urban Assembly and Founder of The Black Man Can, Brandon Frame, the East Orange School District presented: The State of SEL in the Community Building a Better Brother - A Conversation on SEL and Mental Health with CEO & Author "Battle Cry", Mr. Jason Wilson! This cultivating event created a safe space for our male high school scholars and also the East Orange Community. Mr. Wilson, along with our, Superintendent Hasan, traveled to our three high schools, East Orange Campus High, Cicely Tyson High School and East Orange STEM
Academy, not to lecture but to have heartfelt, and open communication with our male students. The day was uplifting, inspiring, emotional, and most of all epic.

 Key words of the day HEALING & TRANSPARENCY..

Superintendent Hasan stated, “As we continue the legacy of Ancestor the Honorable Booker T. Washington, “He lifted the veil of ignorance from his people and pointed the way of progress through education and industry.” We are fortunate to have Brother Jason Wilson share his insight from his latest book called, “Battle Cry.” Addressing self-discipline, mental health, high cost of emotional depression, transparency, and misconstrued masculinity of African American men as well as our youth.

The East Orange School District is humbly grateful to have been a part of the historic tour. This Is How You Kickoff BLACK HISTORY MONTH!!
