About this conference
For nearly six years, "Rumble Young Man Rumble" has convened leaders nationwide in Louisville to share promising practices and lessons learned, and to create collaborations with young Black men in communities across the country.
CBMA CEO Shawn Dove, along with Rev. Dr. Alfonso Wyatt of Strategic Destiny LLC, developed the theme and title of the "Rumble Young Man, Rumble" event, which embodies the encouraging and edifying counsels between Muhammad Ali and his corner man, Drew "Bundini" Brown. "Rumble Young Man, Rumble" solidifies Dove's vision of the Muhammad Ali Center with Louisville serving as the "epicenter for Black Male Achievement.
Said Dove, "'Rumble Young Man, Rumble' is a prime example of how the Campaign for Black Male Achievement seeks to invest in and support the Hometown Heroes and Local Leaders who are advancing the BMA field."
