    The Kaiser Family Foundation and The Washington Post on July 18 hosted a forum in the Foundation's Barbara Jordan Conference Center featuring Bill Cosby and a panel of national leaders examining the experiences of young black men in America.

    The forum, Paths to Success: A Forum on Young African-American Men, addressed the results of a major new national survey conducted by The Washington Post, the Kaiser Family Foundation and Harvard University. The discussion focused on strategies to enable young black men to succeed in America today and built on themes presented in the Post's series, "Being a Black Man."

    The forum began with a conversation with Bill Cosby and was followed by a panel discussion among national leaders and young people. Harvard Law School Professor and Foundation Trustee Charles J. Ogletree, Jr. moderated the forum. Foundation CEO and former New Jersey Human Services Commissioner Drew Altman gave the opening remarks and highlighted key findings from the survey.
