The Great Gathering, a three-day summit of thousands of black Methodists that concluded Wednesday in Columbia, resulted in the creation of a “Male Investment Plan” and a pledge to create a new nonprofit organization to support it.

Three black Methodist denominations organized the event to address the dismal statistics regarding black men from unemployment to incarceration. They plan to launch a series of “Saturday academies” to train black youth on study skills and job preparation.
