NBJC Leadership Advisory Council Member Curtis Lipscomb Wins Black Male Engagement Leadership Award

Congratulations to NBJC Leadership Advisory Council Member Curtis Lipscomb for this huge honor. Ten Detroit men – teachers, businessmen, writers and pastors – have been named winners of the BME Leadership Award, created to honor black men who step up to lead the community. After observing the potential of young people in Detroit, Lipscomb began helping youth around him take action against discrimination. Through a $20k grant, Lipscomb will oversee the LEAD project, which will facilitate an in-depth training of 22 young Detroiters to become more effective advocates of social issues facing the city's LGBT community.
