A group of black men known as Joining Forces with Kings (JFK) unite in downtown Detroit to tell the untold narrative of Black Male Achievement in Detroit. From corporate professional to civic leaders to entrepreneurs, each of their stories is similar, black men are making a difference in Detroit and achieving at high levels.
The group is led by Damarqio Williams and Marvin Peete of Detroit to build a positive network of black men in Detroit. This launch event was all about image and changing the image of how society sees black men. But the image is simply a start to all the group hopes to accomplish. A lofty goal of embracing young black males at different levels within the community to pair them with fellow men who are doing they aspire to be one day. JFK Detroit will be hosting a men’s prayer and conversation in collaboration with Enjoy Detroit on Saturday, November 9, 2019
