“We are a group attempting to eliminate the stereotypes of young black men,” said Darryl McKellar, a teacher at Dorsey. “We wanted to get them some exposure to what’s out there. Not just colleges, but further career choices. And we’re getting them to improve their communication skills. They have to learn how to talk to people so that they can become better, and help their communities become better.”
