Boys' Rites of Passage

Our Sons' Futures

A Rites of Passage Program Includes History

Posted by Thomas on October 26, 2011

No matter your family’s origin (heritage) there is history to be proud of. History that encourages you and causes your head to be held high, your shoulders back, and your back straight. No matter what, your heritage has something, many things in fact, that will teach your son to be proud of who he is and the heritage that he comes from. Even when that history isn’t directly family related it can still be a positive and powerful message.

During the execution of your customized rites of passage program, constantly remain on the look out and take advantage of everyday events that allow you to teach that pride and confidence gleaned from positive achievements of your heritage. This connection will carry your son far as he becomes a responsible male adult in our society.

Miami Dade College will be exhibiting the art collection of Kadir Nelson’s Extraordinary We are the Ship: The Story of Negro League Baseball, beginning with an invitation-only exhibit November 3, 2011. Then We Are the Ship, the exhibition, will remain free and open to the public at the Freedom Tower Nov. 4 – Jan. 8, 2012, during gallery hours. Find positive heritage messages to share with your son during his rites of passage program.
