Hampton Virginia Celebrating Over 700 Black Males Maintaining a 3.0 and Higher


Black excellence and black boy joy are in full effect in Hampton, Virginia. Hundreds of young black males were celebrated for working hard to earn and maintain a 3.0 or higher. Over 700 young black males, dressed to impress, filled Hampton Roads Convention Center to celebrate their outstanding accomplishments.

Some would have you believe black men can only excel in athletics and entertainment. Well this event is writing a new narrative. Black men can excel in all areas, all you need is belief and confidence.

It is our responsibility to promote the positive things that happen in our communities. Young black scholars, striving for excellence!

  1. Urban Intellectuals does itself nor its viewers any favors by allowing posts with multiple spelling and puctuation errors. Please proofread what you allow published on your site. Otherwise, it disputes half the name of the site: “Intellectuals”.

    1. Reneegede, your comments constitute a “poor” response on your part. Even a volunteer can (can and should) be vetted for basic literacy and grammatical skills.

      As for Colonel Riner, you write like the ass I suspect you to be. First, proofread your own criticism of others’ comments before posting yours. Note the incoherence in your first sentence.

      1. Then it matches the incoherence in yours. IJS. Volunteers don’t really “haf” to do jack, not even volunteer. Kapish? You don’t like it, don’t read it.

        1. Why would people want to read shit that isn’t grammaticality correct, or doesn’t even attempt to hold some respect for it’s own volunteers and it’s readers?
          If you don’t like it don’t read it? That seriously lowers the reputation and credibility of the site and its (supposed), volunteers as well as “news articles”, if we can call them that. Let’s say voluntarily–submitted op-eds.
          There, that covered some asses eh?

          So, was this organized by this site? Because all my googling and articles-searching I’m doing just kinda leads back here.

          1. Well, that means that whomever or whoever can’t spell or get their grammar correct is a HELLUVA SEO manager. #MadeULook .

            But you need to talk to the Managing Editor about all that, not me. He’s the Owner.

            I’m just a contributor and I have some serious reservations about engaging with what may be an Internet troll or Russian spy. LOL.

  2. Colonel Riner I understand how you feel completely about the voice, word choice, and anything else that distracted you from the valuable information of this article. However, don’t you dare have the audacity to insinuate that their material is irrelevant without improvements because that would be false and about nine thousand other people agree with me.
    I sincerely appreciate from the bottom of my heart this information and the uplifting power that you’ve created, Reneegede. May God continue to bless you and the other volunteers to do more in the near future.


  3. People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. Check your spelling of “punctuation” or was that just a typo? 🤔🤨

  4. Thank you for sharing this fantastic story. If it weren’t for your effort, many people would not have known of this wonderful event.

    A great accomplishment for the the young men taking part in the celebration, and the educators who assisted and supported them.
