Interview: Fort Wayne City Councilman Geoff Paddock on Black Male Achievement
From education to income, there’s a significant gap between black men and their peers in Fort Wayne- last year, the City was awarded a technical grant from the National League of Cities to address the disparity.
As a part of the initiative, the NLC held a conference in Oakland last month for the participating cities to learn about strategies for improving black male achievement.
Fort Wayne City Councilman Geoff Paddock attended the conference. He recently joined WBOI’s Virginia Alvino in the Madge Rothschild Studios to talk about what he learned, and what the next steps for the City are.
This is the latest installment in WBOI's yearlong project, "The Difference."
